Any suggestions on how to motivate a child who is not motivated to read and whose parents do not feel should have to read for homework?

The child is reading at the low end of grade level and does not respond positively to having a choice of reading materials. She grudgingly will choose between a small set of books or choose to read a short piece and answer short questions instead of actually getting into a real book. And even then, she will "forget" to read or forget her book, etc.

I have bought many books hoping to find the one that will catch her attention but so far, not much luck. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
