My granddaughter is going to be 11 next week and she needs to read this summer and I want to get her books she can read. Does anybody have any suggestions on books good for her also any book deals for her?? thanks
I remember reading a lot of Judy Blume at age 11 (not Forever or Wifey, but the kids' stuff). I have 3 titles from her on my shelf, and I could send all 3 for 1 credit, check them out.
I have several books on my shelf that may work for you...Best Friends Forever by Joyce Hostetter, Meet Kirsten: An American Girl by Janet Shaw, The Midwife's Apprentice by Karen Cushman (this is a Newberry Medal Winner in 1996), Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper, On the Far Side of The Mountain by Jean Craighead George. I also have five Nancy Drew mysteries on my shelf...most have four out of five stars.
I am offering 2 books for 1 credit...Order 1 and PM me with the title of the free one (This deal is for my entire shelf thru June 30th)
A lot of my shelf is my girls books and they are 13 and 11. I would recomend the following from my shelf:
Animal ark fun animal stories
Box car children loved them as a kid and read them about age 11
mary Kate and Ashley mysteries
Great illustrated classics
Jack star and the secret door my almost 12 year old loved it
midnight chess game again my almost 12 year old loved it
mysteries in the national park the mysteries take place in the different national parks with a family as they are on vacation
real kids adventures I have vol 1 and vol 2. These are so good. I enjoyed them as well. Kids you really help other kids
rescue 911 kids you come to the rescue again true stories( really good)
True tales of animal heroes read how regular animals become heroes. This is really good as well.
I would be willing to do 5 books for 3 credits, 11 books for 6 credits or 20 books for 10 credits. I will gladly extend this to anyone reading this. I hope you find some. My girls have enjoyed all that I listed! JEan
Unfortunately most of my childhood books were lost when our old house burned down, so I can't offer you any kids books for trade, but I would suggest looking for the following:
Nancy Drew books
Hardy Boys books
Boxcar Children books
Babysitter's Club and Little Sister's books
She might be a little young yet for Tamora Pierce's Tortall world, but if she's an advanced reader, or if you're looking ahead...
Alex Mack books
Laura Ingalls Wilder books
(I had some old Freddy the Pig books that I loved, but I'm not sure how easy they are to find.)

My 11 y/o daughter has recently cleaned her shelves of book she's already read. They're all now posted here. If you see anything, let me know. I'm always willing to do 3/2 or 5/3. If you have another deal in mind, I'm open to offers!
I have over 100 children's books on my shelf. I will do 5 for 3 credits or 8 for 4 credits or 12 for 5 credits. If you want more than that the deal gets better as the # of books goes up. Please send a PM telling me which ones you want free after you order the books for credit from my shelf. Thank you. Peggy
