Great Books for Girls

Given that I have two daughters (ages 14 and 7.5), I'm constantly on the search for good books for them that have active female protagonists and girl-positive themes.

The Amelia Bloomer Project looks like it has lots of good references, both fiction and non-fiction. (Link via Broadsheet at

I also have some links to female-positive speculative fiction books somewhere. I'll see if I can find the links and post them here.

Anyone else have recommendations?
