My eleven year old half sister and I live in two different states and have a decent age difference (I'm 21). I was talking to her last week and she asked if the two of us can start a book club. Both of us are voracious readers so I agreed. She asked that when I come home this weekend that I have a list of books ("at least two pages!") that the two of us can read together.
She's very smart and a fast reader who reads above her age level (I think that my dad said "8th Grade Level" or something like that last time I asked.) Currently she is interested in dystopia societies (read all of The Hunger Games and is in the middle of Divergent), World War II and fantasy. She is also a huge Dr. Who fan. I'm looking for interesting books that will give us a lot to talk about. Generally she is not very interested in phone conversations so books are the only way the two of us really stay connected.
So far my list includes:
*Tamora Pierce series
*Among the Hidden (etc.)
*The Giver/Gathering Blue/etc.
*A Wrinkle in Time
She asked me about The Diary of Anne Frank, but I can't remember when I read it.
