Books for a thirteen-year-old girl

I've got a thirteen-year-old girl in modern-day Massachusetts who's convinced she's talking to God, and who is now the object of a media circus and nationwide attention. Suddenly there's a guy camped outside her home purporting to be selling "relics" made from pages of books she's taken out of the library.

I was thirteen eight years ago, and I was never a girl, so -- what might she be reading? She's a pretty mainstream kid, a little quiet. I imagine she'd be into realistic fiction rather than fantasy or sci-fi, interested in stuff a little more literary than Gossip Girl, and she likes humor and suspenseful plot twists. I liked Freak the Mighty and I am the Cheese, myself, but I think they're not recent enough. Bonus points if the title of the book is evocative enough on its own that someone not familiar with the book could get an impression of its contents.
