My mother handed down her Nancy Drew books to me. I think this book started my love of mysteries and I devoured her whole collection. It's fun to see that some of my students are returning to this classic. ( )

My mom was a huge Nancy Drew fan and I read a ton of these old books as a kid, so I know I've read this one multiple times, but as that was over 30 years ago, I have zero memory of it. It was definitely an enjoyable read, though rather light on the mystery aspect. I do plan to read more of the series and hope the mysteries get a bit better as they go on. ( )

I think it was probably Nancy Drew books that first made a real "reader" out of me. I devoured most of the collection during the years of 5th grade to 7th, along with the Babysitter's Club series. Then I moved on to Christopher Pike thrillers. ( )

The book that launched Nancy Drew. It was entertaining slipping back into another era. Nancy drives down a country road looking for a house. She stops at several places along the way for directions. Well, that wouldn't happen today. A couple of plot points were annoying. Nancy's brand new convertible roof won't go back up and later gets a flat tire. I did, however, enjoy how helpful people were back then. And, a hundred thousand was quite a fortune back then. Yes, Nancy can be a little too perfect, but maybe we could use a few more people like her in real life. ( )
