Has she read Nancy Drew?
Flavia de Luce series by C. Alan Bradley.
Really good ya mystery .
Maddix writer series..awesome
Harry Potter series. Goosebumps books.
Annie of Green Gables, all of Harry Potter, the Babysitters Club series
For 13 year olds? My daughter read these in first grade.
Maximum Ride series by James Patterson..they were FANTASTIC, my daughter ate them up
Serafina series by Robert Beatty
Oooh, I loved the Serafina and the Black Cloak! I mean, my imaginary daughter loved it…
Me too..ohh I mean my imaginary daughter too…! ?
Try to keep her in the 9-12 section of a store— in teen, books may contain graphic sex and violence. There are plenty of great reads in 9-12 that are filled with drama, mystery and the like. As a manager in a bookstore, I think you should take her in and let her discuss her likes and dislikes and together the seller and your 13 yr old will find great solutions.
This series was my favorite at that age!
John Grisham’s young adult series, Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer. Wonderful!
Princess diaries by meg cabot
Is she a rising 8th grader? She could probably start Sue Grafton or Agatha Christie. When I was her age I read Daphne du Maurier’s “Rebecca” for
the first time and it has been my lifelong favorite!
My daughter’s “all school” assigned book for her middle school is called Refugee by Alan Gratz and it was an AMAZING book.
Inkheart; Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; the Atticus Claw books?
Don’t discount Miss Peregrine because of the creepy pictures. It is NOT a creepy story! More like a superhero story with a gothic edge.
Miss Peregrine books would be perfect. Also Mysterious Benedict Society. 🙂
Yep, my 12 and 10-yr-old girls love them. 🙂
Also Nevermoor, and Boy Underwater (recommended by my 12-yr-old).
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. It’s a series of 3 if she likes it. I loved it. It’s not YA but it’s clean and so very good.
A Wrinkle in Time is book 1 of 5 by L’Engle. And the Michael Scott Alchemist Series.
Elizabeth George has a mystery series for teens.
The Glass Castle ~ not a mystery but was my daughter’s favorite book in middle school.
I just finished reading I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall and I really liked it. Its a survivalist story about a girl who finds herself alone in the backwoods of Alaska/Canada.
My reading was never censored. Take her to your local library and let her find her bliss.

I remember discovering Mary Stewart’s romantic suspense novels when I was about that age. One of my favorites was The Moon-Spinners which was made into a Disney movie. If she likes mysteries, I would also recommend Mary Higgins Clark. Though written for adults, they are tame enough for younger readers.
Honestly, I don’t remember what I was reading when I was 13. Times have changed; authors have changed. I may have been reading Victoria Holt, Philippa Carr, Helen Wells (Cherry Ames series), I know I read Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, too.
I asked my bookworm 12 year old granddaughter and she suggested: Jk Rowling:Harry Potter
James Patterson: middle school series
Nancy Drew Babysitters Club
There’s a reading level and an interest level. Some 13 year olds are ready for more adult themes. I’d try some nonfiction and memoir.
The Elsewhere Book series
Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey ?
My daughter loved this series: https://www.amazon.com/Tell-Love-Then-Gallagher-Girls-ebook/dp/B000S1LF5K/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1532748712&sr=1-7&keywords=ally+carter
Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer series by John Grisham, the young adult series by Carl Hiaasen: Hoot, Flush, Scat, etc.
The London Eye Mystery is my favorite. Also Blue Balliet’s books are great.
Linda fairstein’s series Devin Quick it’s simular to nancy drew
