My daughter is ten years old (almost eleven) and in the fifth grade. She has to do a book report and the book needs to be a mystery. I’ve suggested Nancy Drew to her, because I started reading them at her age, and it’s… you know, Nancy Drew. But I was wondering if there weren’t any other age-appropriate mystery stories I could point her to, as well? Just for flavor.
It cannot be the Cam Jensen series, because that’s lower than her current reading level and her teachers specifically nixed those. I know I have some avid readers and a couple of librarians who might be reading this, so if you have an recs you can throw at, we’d be grateful.
