Hello All

I am looking for some inspirational / motivational books for my DD (11 years old)

I found / heard books like power of positive thinking , 7 habits of highly effective people etc., are inspirational and interesting but I dont think it would be much interesting for a child...

Hence looking for books which would be more suitable for her age...
Any recommendations please?

Thank you.

To be honest I'm not one for these sorts of books for adults so that might be skewing my view but I wouldn't give such things to an 11 year old.
Maybe some biographies of positive role models she can relate to would be helpful?
Depending on her circumstances, young people who have overcome adversity?

Personally speaking, anything 'motivational' and I run for the hills.
