10 year old reading material

Question

My 10 year old daughter is reading at about a 6th grade level which means she has access to books that are in the Jr. High/High School range. I would prefer she not read teen romance (and have told her this) but she seems to be drawn to it. I have requested she not read books with characters older than she is but I have found books of older teens with older situations in them (just "mild" teen romance--kissing, boyfriends etc). Am I being unreasonable in this? I don't want her going "behind my back" to read these books but know this is a curiosity that a lot of girls have and I'm sure she's encountering discussions about this at school. She is a good student and is a great helper around the house so I would love to hear any advice you might have on the subject. Thanks!
