my 12 year old sister is 5'1 so how much should she weigh to be normal weight?

Average at 110: The average weight of a 5'1" female would be about 110. The range would include about 100-120. You can download a growth chart from the cdc site and follow her growth over time. See:www.Cdc.Gov/growthcharts.
