My very first DWJ book was "The Power of Three", in the Magicquest series
thing, which is the only reason I can think of that I didn't go looking for
more by her. I loved this book, and if the person is a fantasy reader, this
is one of the best, as far as I'm concerned. The idea of magic existing in
the real world, which isn't really the real world or is a skewed version of
it, was so enchanting to me at 12 (or younger). I guess, then, if the person
is relatively young, that's a good book to suggest.
