I need historical fiction set in the time of the Maya Empire...

I considered the Royal Diaries book, Lady of Palenque: Flower of Bacal, but it seems just a bit too difficult. The reading level is supposed to be 5.9, but the Lexile Level is 1070. My 6th grader reads a bit below grade level (probably somewhere around 5.0-5.5, and the Lexile Level that seems to work for her is around 700. The Royal Diaries book might work as a read-aloud, but I am really looking for a book she can read on her own instead. A female main character about 10-13 years old, and an action-filled plot--a bit of mystery and intrigue--would be ideal. Otherwise, a book of Maya myths and legends would be great too, if you have one you can recommend.
