Re: In need of good books for 8 year old girl
Keep her away from Where the Red Fern Grows, then! It's one of my favorite books from childhood, but I was a wreck for DAYS after reading it.

She enjoys fantasy and funny books.
She is a very fast reader though. She gets through books so fast and she wants more.
I'm not complaining but our local library has had bed bugs. ( yuck) I would love to be able to buy her a book and have it last her a couple days instead of a couple hours. Lol
Nothing better than seeing your child giggling away at something they are reading.
I also wanted to add Encylopedia Brown books and The Westing Game. Rebecca Stead's books, Liar & Spy and When You Reach Me are also great.
