Typical Nancy. Sometimes I just want to listen to something that I know what to expect will happen. ( )

Nancy gets into quite a spot of danger, but luckily she is equally good at making new friends and solving mysteries. ( )

Im not sure what the most appropriate way to deal with this would be but I found the fact that this book repeatedly uses the term "oriental" to describe East Asian people and things not ok. I understand its inclusion in the original but I read a modern edition (an audiobook narrated by Laura Linney actually) and edits should have been made. Mention the change in a footnote or preface maybe, whatever needs to be done to avoid leaving a racist and outdated term unacknowledged in a childrens book. I know when I was a kid I got a lot of vocab from what I was reading and used it in conversation, you do the math.

In regards to the actual story, it was ok but who's bright idea was it to have Nancy and the gang dress up as the klan to spy on people? ( )

"Hurry, girls."
"That Oriental-looking clerk in the perfume shop certainly acted mysterious," Bess Marvin declared, as she and her two friends ended their shopping trip and hurried down the street to the railroad station.
