Appropriate books 3/4 grade readers

I have two questions.The first has to do with children in the lower grades reading 8/9 grade level books. The young girl read the whole Cul-de-sac Kids books in two days. Her brother read the Prince Warroirs series in 3 weeks. So many of the teen books, even Christian writers, deal with topics not appropriate for 8/9 year olds.Any suggestions?Second question:Has anyone read the Bergdan Chronicles by Ginny Dye? Would they be appropriate for a church library?See More
