Tall, skinny 5 yo needs new car seat

I'm looking for a new car seat for my tall, yet skinny 5yo. She has outgrown the 5 pt harness height on our current car seat but I don't think she is ready to sit in a high back booster. She only weighs 38lbs but is 48". Would a graco nautilus still allow her to sit in the 5pt harness at 48" tall? What other car seats would you recommend?

TIA!

What seat did she outgrow? Can you measure her torso....have her sit up straight against a wall and measure floor to shoulder. It totally depends on her harness height.
