For chanukah I like to give each of my kids a new book. I'm blanking on what book to give my nearly 12 year old DD. She's an avid reader and will read just about anything. Can be secular or Jewish, looking for recommendations. Thanks all.

This not a regular book but Raizy Fried from Raizy’s Cookin came out with an amazing cookbook for kids /girls and it’s supposed to be a masterpiece. It sounds like it’s something a 12 yr old girl would enjoy.

Agree, but she already read them like 3 years ago. I ended up ordering the story thieves series because it looked like the kind of thing she'd like. But still open to other suggestions.
