Yay Tumblr didn’t eat this ask like I thought! I hope you’re still around. I’m trying not to go too over the top here but by 12 I was reading Stephen King on the regular so. These are a couple short stories that aren’t too hard to find (last I checked) and a couple creepypasta; for more online stuff, I’m recruiting my brother delcat.
1. Uncle Joshua and the Grooglemen by Debra Doyle and James MacDonald.
3. Skeleton by Ray Bradbury, really a shit ton of Ray Bradbury is great for that age
4. The Bone Man by Laura Simms which is also a traditional Modoc tale.
5. Candle Cove
6. Bonus don’t know if she’s old enough yet buuuut Born Of Man And Woman by Richard Matheson.
YMMV on appropriateness here as I said.
