How can young readers with high reading levels find content that's just-right for their age?

Realizing Shelf Help rarely gets questions about books for children, the booksellers – Emma, Jack and Kari – had a ton of fun discussing answers to this very common question. All agreed that The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making and The Winternight Trilogy would be great books for any child with a high reading level who's not quite ready for teen and adult topics. They also offered unique picks, such as Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata. We hope they help those of you with children in your life who pose this dilemma.
