When I was in Jr. High School my friend Susan and I read lots and lots of Nancy Drew books. We loved them and traded them back and forth. I loved mystery stories and still do. I loved trying to figure out "who done it" and how the story would end. I enjoyed reading about the small town that Nancy and her friends, George and Bess, lived in. I could be sure that nothing TOO drastic or gory or scary would happen. And everyone always lived "happily ever after". I still have a few of my old books, but wish I had saved them all. Every once in a while I look in thrift stores to see if I can find any more old ones, but they are hard to find.
My two daughters love Nancy Drew, too. But they like to play the computer games, which are pretty amazing. You can travel from room to room and building to building, clicking on things to open to try to find all the clues to the newest mystery. They are both very hooked on the games and are always excited when a new one comes out. They trade them back and forth, too!
Nancy Drew has been around for a very long time and she never even ages! She always gets updated to the present and still always solves the mysteries!
