Monologue for a 10 year old's audition?

My daughter and I have to choose a two minute monologue from a published play (not from "101 Monologues for Young People") for an audition to an arts middle school. My daughter has to read the whole play and be able to discuss the meaning of the monologue and why she chose it during the audition.
She's very literate so no problem reading, but the themes should have some relevance to a 10 year old. She's very resistant to playing across gender but could possibly be convinced. She'd much rather do something funny than something "messagy".
Apparently, You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown is really played out in these auditions already.
