Explicações
tardis: I can't recall exactly what I loved at age 11 (it was a long time ago!) but I have loved Swallows and Amazons since I first read it, which was at least that long ago.
reading_fox: Read all of them over the years, but haven't been back to re-visit them. The new film is actually pretty good too.
thorold: Sailing, codes, exploring, pirates - how could this be improved?

Explicações
paradoxosalpha: I'm pretty sure I read this long before the age of eleven. But it has a conspicuously 11-year-old protagonist.
ahef1963: I didn't read this series until I was in my late 20s, but I was and still am mesmerized by them.

Explicações
bw42: I know it was my favorite when I was eleven because it was my favorite from when I first read it at 9 or 10 until I was 13 or 14. I read it at least once every summer for that period

paradoxosalpha: I remember reading this one when I was ten, in fact. I have vivid memories of reading it in my grammar school library, although I had checked out the book (in a sturdy old library hardcover) from the public library.

gendeg: Ender's realization at the end at what he'd done and how he'd been used was too much for my 11-year-old self to handle. Masterfully wrought and devastating.
