granddaughter lost interest in reading

My 5th grade granddaughter has been a voracious reader forever. She's read tons of complete series - mostly wizard and mystical stuff. She used to come to my house for a weekend with a couple of books and then beg to go to the library. Recently, I've noticed when she stays at my house, she's not bringing any books. She has no iphone or iPad distracting her. I'm thinking she might bored with the type of books she's read before. I have tried to introduce some of the classics, i.e. Betsy Tacy, The Secret Garden, Ballet Shoes, plus non-fiction, but she not interested. How can I rekindle her passion and get her to expand her reading interests?

If you are looking for a new type...My students recommended a book called The War that Save my Life. Perhaps a different genre will help?

Maybe something happened that involves reading or books that made her lose her love of reading
