More About the Author

Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon are the pseudonyms under which many ghostwriters penned the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series, respectively. Both series were created by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate book packaging firm, in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Stratemeyer's daughter, Harriet, and syndicate writer Mildred Wirt Benson were the two people primarily responsible for bringing the iconic character of Nancy Drew to life in the minds and hearts of millions of readers around the world.

I picked this book up with some trepidation. Nancy has survived many things over the years- the rewrites,the move to Simon & Schuster (who seemed determined to burn her out to make short term money) the DREADFUL college series, the soft core Casefiles-and it's nice to see she's back to being as close to Mildred Wirt Benson's Nancy as one could hope.
I have some reservations about the first person narrative. And it is VERY annoying that George is a nickname for "Georgia" when the originals stated that George was named George because her dad wanted a son. Making Bess a gearhead is also stretching things a bit but these are minor irritations.
It's nice to see good old reliable Ned back and to have a Nancy who is not perfect. Trixie Belden (thankfully also getting a new lease on life) was always lovable because she was flawed.
Some of the vocabulary in the new Drews seems to be lifted from the 50s versions but I would rather see Nancy err on the side of grammar than be forced to hear her use gangsta flavored words.
In short, this series was touted as updating Nancy and making her edgy. The edge is a delightful surprise- she's back to how she was when the series was at its peak. No sex, no messy romance, just an icon solving formulaic mysteries in a way that will hopefully delight new generations of readers.

Format: Paperback
I liked the book Nancy Drew: Girl Detective because it was a mystery, one my personal favorite genres. I like how the author has you thinking it's one person, almost positive it's them when you suddenly find out it's not him/her! I like Nancy because she reminds of Sammy Keys who is also a girl detective, but Sammy Keys is around the age of twelve and thirteen. Nancy Drew is around the ages of sixteen, seventeen and eighteen.

The story is about a teenaged girl named Nancy, her friend Bess and Bess's cousin George, who is also a girl but is a "tom boy" so they call her George instead of Georgia, her real name. When Heather Simmons and Morris Granger are running for mayor, Heather's daughter, Leslie, who is a great piano player, disappears before her huge recital which she would never, ever miss. When Nancy finds out, she's onto the case in no time! Bess and George know better than to let their friend go too wild so they decide to help Nancy so Nancy won't be alone. When Nancy is on a case she goes crazy so Bess and George are also there to keep both eyes on her! Leslie, they think, was kidnapped by Morris Granger so she would be so distracted that Heather would forget all about running for mayor. Little do they know that they are wrong. Who would want to kidnap Leslie and why?

If you've ever read the Sammy Key's book or just a great mystery book that wasn't hard to read, then I think this book will mostly appeal to you! So I hope you'll read this book and enjoy it like I did!

Format: Paperback
Nancy Drew is an exciting book series. My favorite book is False Notes. What's great about it is that the authors rewrote the original story series in between 2005 and 2006. Although Nancy Drew's personality is amazing, aggressive and, yet a little mean. She could be nice on occasion, but she looks out for the people in River Heights.

In False Notes Nancy is in a psychic store and sees two African American married people fighting on the street. And all of a sudden the story turns into Nancy walking around with her friends at 10:00 pm looking for the African American couple's daughter.

I recommend this book for people age 8 and up who adore mysteries.
