I am looking for YA books with a female main character, that will pass muster with very conservative Christian parents.

At work today I was discussing the Bechdel Test
with a colleague, and he told me that his 13 year old daughter has read the same Brian Jacques book five times because its the only one with a female main character.
He asked if I could recommend anything she might like, with a caveat: she likes fantasy/adventure, but they're practicing Christians so she's not allowed to read anything with magic.
I came up with Coraline by Neil Gaiman, and the Hunger Games, then drew a complete blank. There have to be others, right?
