Our pick of the best books for 9 - 12 year olds

Finding the perfect read for the boy who loves gore and all things gross and adventurous or the girl who wants something a bit more serious or a story to make her giggle, or something that's suitable for both to read can be a hard task. We've taken away the difficulty by recommending our favourite titles! Our selection will also be well received by younger readers who are reading up, or older readers looking for a quick story to get into.
