    Does your tinkering boy have Mini Weapons Of Mass Destruction? There are a lot in that series. My Dad purchased some for my boys and the books are well cherished for a variety of reasons. They were showing them to some friends who asked if they could borrow them, and the books were a huge hit amongst their tinkerers {including Dad..}

    I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

    Shay, I was just looking at our bookshelves and found a bunch more ideas for your dd

    -- Bobbsey Twins? Too young?

    -- Trixie Belden books -- I LOVED these when I was here age (mysteries). Similar to Nancy Drew but a slightly different feel. They are GREAT!!! https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...trixie+belden+
    -- Nancy Drew -- at that age, I had a friend who loved ND -- she had those, and we swapped Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew

    -- The Dear America books? Has she read any of those? https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_1_2_...pd_rd_wg=KAWxo
    -- my girls also LOVED the Royal Diaries books https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...diaries+series

    Has she read Elvira Woodruff books? All of my kids have enjoyed those. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...woodruff+books

    Bound for Oregon -- https://www.amazon.com/Bound-Oregon-...und+for+Oregon

    -- Katie absolutely LOVED history at that age, and her favorite book was The Perilous Journey of the Donner Party (non-fiction) https://www.amazon.com/Perilous-Jour...ner+party+book It's depressing She also loved WWII books at 11/12/13 (and still does)




    At about 13, she'll be ready for Ann Rinaldi -- GREAT historical fiction -- https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...ds=ann+rinaldi
