When I hear situations like these, it reminds me of my youngest daughter.

The very best information I can offer you is to find a smart, qualified Child Psychologist and/or Child Psychiatrist to do a thorough evaluation on her.
Mind you, a thorough evaluation should not just be done in one visit, but over a course of a few visits, with a ton of paper work for you and her teachers to fill out.

Know what is behind your daughters behaviors is extremely important, and it is most likely more complex than just reading books and parenting.

I'm sure your daughter is not happy with the way she is, but doesn't know how to change - probably doesn't know what is driving her mood / behaviors.

But as I mentioned above, a top notch Dr. is key here!

Take care Mom,
