Lavie Tidhar, the Candy mafia. I wish he'd write more stuff.
Are the American girl doll books and box car books too babyish?
Biggles. A bit boyish.
Some Roald Dahl.
Enid Blyton. Some of her series would still be entertaining for 13 year olds. I am still entertained by them ! hard to find in America but I think you can buy them all on amazon. They've been doctored a bit, sadly. Too much xenofobia and too much antiquated vocab, which is sad because her books were banned partially because she supposedly did not vary her vocab enough.
Noel Streatfield for a girl who likes performing arts. There are some chapters about xmas in her books, from memory. Nothing religious, just tree, presents and carrols.

If you have a kindle, many of these are available on line, including some for free download.
