Question by : Book suggestion for teenage girls?
I am a 13 year old girl who loves to read. I hate mushy love stories and prefer mystery books/novels. I love Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Cassidy’s work and I also loved Eve by Anne Carey and Down the Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams.
I like some classics like Anne of green gables but I did not like Kim, Secret Garden or Little Princess much. I also HATE meg Cabot’s work!
Another genre I do not like is Sci-fi fiction/non fiction……the stuff where someone is chosen to destroy some lame demon etc etc and save the world…blah blah blah….
So anything with a cool mystery/detective plot (other than Agatha Christie & Sherlock Holmes stuff) like Down the Rabbit Hole……about a 13 year old girl who solves the murder mystery of a crazy lady in her town. Anything similar to Jacqueline Wilson/Cathy Cassidy books (about kids/teens and the common problems we face in day to day life) is also awesome!!

  1. I don’t know about the books, but I think how pathetic I am – lying in bed with my computer when it’s bright and sunny outside and it’s almost 12, i cannot believe I do this to myself.
    By the way, you are not 13 yo, you are lying as well. I don’t know why you are doing this. Thanks :)

  2. Hi
    The Ladies Detective Series by Alexander McCall Smith are BRILLIANT i can’t empathise enough how amazing they are, they are all about detection and mystery. the novel is set in Botswana and is easily related to modern day occurances.

    However i think you may like Ruby Redford -look into my eyes by Lauren Childs more. It is a new book that i have recently read and it is about a incredibly intelligent teenager who cracks codes. There’s burglary , attempted murder, murder (none of which are gruesome or disturbing) theft, cryptic messages and clues. It’s a very clever book with a very engaging and clever plot, i really engaged with Ruby the characterisation of her is great!.
    I hope this helps, and just for reference just because she reads more than just the words on her computer screen doesn’t make her any older than 13, I’m only 14! :)
