the_child has asked me for a reading list of both middle reader and YA fantasy and science fiction. Obviously I have my ideas, from my childhood or more recent reading, but what would you recommend for her?
Title, author, and a little bit of description would be favorite, and maybe a note on why you like it.
ETA: If you know the_child personally, please do not mention her name in comments. I've worked very hard to preserve her online privacy.
