    My daughter has just finished and thoroughly enjoyed the Noughts and Crosses trilogy , and I was wondering if anyone could recommend anything similar ?
    She's read all Jaqueline Wilson, Heidi , Katy series of books as well as all the David Williams books . She isn't in to vampires so Twilight is out , and I'm not sure Hunger Games / Harry Potter is her thing either . Thanks in advance !

    Has she tried Ottoline by Chris Riddell (maybe a little young??) or Goth Girl? Beautifully illustrated and good stories too.

    My 11 year old has discovered, and adores Dork Diaries. Ghastly books, but she loves them!

    Not a series but a really good read. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

    Wells and Wong (murder most unladylike series) by Robin Stevens my daughter loved these

    Tiffany Aching (5 book box set) by Terry Pratchett.

    These are great and have a young girl (witch) as protagonist. Nothing like Potter so don't worry!

    Sharon Creech is quite good...I'd start off with Ruby Holler. Philip Ridley is also excellent- Mighty Fizz Chilla would be my favourite, although it is one of the longer ones. Brilliant illustrations and a bit whacky.
    And Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines series is fantastic.
