What Do You Get a 13-Year-Old Girl?
Dear Gifty McGifty,
I’d like to get a book for a 13-year-old girl. Something that doesn’t feel like homework. But nothing with vampires. What you got?

We LOVE special requests here at Gifty Central. What we recommended to our friend, who really did write us, was the following:
Meg Cabot’s Airhead series
How to Raise Your Parents by Sarah O’Leary Burningham
and Ally Carter’s Heist Society, which I think would pair nicely with a DVD of Grace Kelly in “To Catch a Thief.” You could even throw in a sparkly necklace from J.Crew to round out the retro-glam, cat burglar theme.
