I grew up on science fiction, Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimovs are
traditionally the best.
Asimovs robot series is real good mystery writing. I was reading the
stuff from 6th grade on.
But that was 1956-1960 and I'm sure the best will remain to be a good read.
Early Heinlein is written for the younger readers. By the time he wrote
Stranger in a Strange Land he was getting very deep, his later work is
very adult. But I read Orwells 1984 in the 7th grade, some kids can
handle it. I've listed some sites, but there are thousands. If I were
to recommend an author for a young lady it would be Ursula Le Guin or if
she would be into fantasy perhaps Ray Bradbury.
I only know some of the classic stuff. There is a lot of very shallow
crap out there.
