Delightful girl power

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and so have the girls I've recommended it too. I would say 7th or 8th grade+. I don't usually like "girlie" books (as I have sons), but this one was a delightful read.

Not sure what age would like this

The vocab was out of my ten year old's league. She is a strong reader, but it was still too erudite for her. She felt it was pretentious. We read a few chapters out loud and she gave up.
