Can you all help me compile a good list of books for girls of various ages? Like empowering books, books with strong female characters, books that go against expectations of girly, and books that girls just love.

I'll start with a few:

Young children:
The Paper Bag Princess
Princesses Don't Always Wear Pink

Middle grades:
Beezus and Ramona series
Little House on the Prairie series
Frankie K. Stein series

The Hunger Games series
His Dark Materials series (The Golden Compass, etc.)

My girls enjoyed Little Women. There are several versions but this one looks like a recent version. There's also a 99 cent Kindle version.
