I'm a reviewer for teen fiction, and recently I was approached by my old middle school teacher from the small parochial school I attended asking me for reccomendations for the girls in her fifth and sixth grade class.
One of the girls had been reading a Clique book (It's Not Easy Being Mean), and she felt that it wasn't appropriate for the school setting. Now, I'm not trying to incite a debate or anything about censorship, but what I would like are reccomendations for books that aren't bratty or snarky or mean, have good strong role models (they don't have to be Christian books, but if they are, that's fantastic!) and would be appropriate for 9-12 year old girls who attend a parochial school. They can be from any genre!
Thanks so much!
