Book recommendations for 13 year-old girls

I run a once-a-week book club for 8 grade 7 girls. We likely have funding and time to read one more book and I'd really like to make it something special.

We've discussed what they want to read, but they're all over the map genre-wise. They'd prefer a male protagonist (those this isn't a necessity) and something at least a couple hundred pages long. They're all solid readers and bright. Ideally, I'd like to introduce them to something classic that can really open up reading and literature. Preferably something at least a bit humorous.
My students thank you for your suggestions!
