Gakuen Alice - manga
Young Mikan runs away to Tokyo following her best friend, Hotaru, who has been enrolled in an exclusive, secretive private school for geniuses. But it turns out that Alice Academy is a lot more than meets the eye. If Mikan wants to stay by Hotaru's side, she has to both pass the strange "entrance exam" and face the even greater challenge of befriending her very odd new classmates. Whether it's Hotaru's gift for inventing gadgets, the cranky Natsume's fire-casting ability, or Professor Narumi's control of human pheromones, everyone at the school has some sort of special talent. But what ability, if any, does Mikan possess? Mikan is going to have to rely on her courage and spunk if she's going to stay in school, or even stay alive!

First thing is first, I have NOT finished reading all of this up to date yet, so I may change my review when I finish it if something else comes up I feel I need to mention. With that out of the way I'd like to say that this has to be one of the BEST child styled manga's I have read to date. By child styled I mean something that isn't based on more mature styled content, its sweet and innocent, yet has its own dark and twisted moments that put the young characters to the test. The unique story plot is enjoyable, and is full of more than a few good laughs. Its defiantly in my mind considered a 'family friendly' manga. The anime is also fairly good and I would also recommend that to you as well.
Thats right, not only is this on my recommended reading list its also on my recommended Anime list!
P.S. I am soooooooo addicted to the cute lil' Natsume Hyuuga... sooo reminds me of a cuter, less pervy version of Miroku from InuYasha XD
