In brief: Depnds on her height

Assuming an average 8 year old girl of 50 inches (50th percentile), the average weight is 57 lbs (a body mass index (bmi) of 50th percentile).
Bmi isn't a perfect measure so there are variations based on body type, especially muscle mass. A very tall girl (55") might be normal at 75 lbs and a very short girl (45") might be normal at 40 lbs.

In brief: Depends

It depends on the child's height and her usual growth pattern.
The range can be from about 45# to 85#- a wide range. Your doctor will compare how your child has been growing over time, which is much more important.
