Books that allow ten y/o girl take new feelings out on "test drive"?

There is a scene in season 3, episode 4 of Louie ("Daddy's Girlfriend Part 2") where Louie is in a bookstore asking the salesperson (Parker Posie) about recommendations for his ten year old daughter. There is a great exchange where Parker Posie reveals to Louie that there are things about being female, that at that age, start coming "online." And that she knows of books that can "take these feelings, these big emotions, they let you take them out for a safe kind of spin." Then she hands Louie a book. At first I was dying to know what book, specifically, that was. Then I thought I might ask Mefites for recommendations for those types of books. Can y'all help me out? Books for ten year old girls that let them take new teenage emotions and feelings out for a "spin"?
