My 11 year old is looking for werewolf (or other lycanthrope/paranormal) series. She is an avid fan of Warriros and and Wolves of the Beyond. She likes the werewolf theme, but all seem to gravitate around romance and sexual themes, which are still a little beyond her. Romance is probably fine, to some extent as a part of the story buy preferably not the central theme. She's certainly not ready for the sexual themes in many of the YA paranormal romance section. Any suggestions on lycanthrope or animal series for an advanced 11 year old girl? I really need help.

a good shrink could help her recover after she reads all that stuff

and most 11 yo are more ready than parents will admit

many of them are already doing it

Here's one for her that I think an 11-year-old can handle: Stephen King's Cycle of the Werewolf (Signet).

My daughter is 11 and in the same boat. She enjoyed the Seekers series...bears not wolves but it was interesting to her. I'm going to let her see if Twilight is interesting to her but I don't think it will be her thing...too much romance!

TWILIGHT is terribly written, too. Awful.

Yes so I have heard some people think that. I enjoyed reading the series as have millions of other people. I believe in letting my daughter actually enjoy some reading and not make it all classics. Sometimes she even reads my old comic books from the late 60's and 70's and enjoys them immensely. If it always has to be cerebral and perfect, I wouldn't enjoy reading as much as I do. My grandmother taught English for 30 years and her theory was that if a child enjoyed reading something, they should be encoraged to enjoy it not discouraged because it wasn't a classic or something that would stand the test of time. Her theory allowed my mother to let my sister and me pick books well below our reading level that we enjoyed as well as allowed us to read at 12th grade level for testing purposes when we were in elementary school. I guess its different strokes for different folks!

I don't just read classics.

I know a child that read Twilight at nine, but then again, she also read The Tale of Despereaux in the second grade. A good book for a child who likes werewolves is probably the Percy Jackson series. Not so much werewolves, but still mythological, all the characters are like 12 & 13 in the first few, keeping romance to a minimum and Rick Riordan manages to keep the mythology true, while mixing in his own humor. Doesn't quite capture the mystery, like in Warriors, though. Another suggestion is Maximum Ride series. Not really mythology so much as crazy sci-fi. Six kids with wings, one gets kidnapped, budding romance between leader and best friend, lot of action, though. Late elementary and middle schoolers love it.
