The Drew mysteries have early adolescent girls as the target audience. The plotting and the language reflect this. This is not at all a hyper realistic deception of either personalities or locations. Things happen as girls of this age might imagine things might happen and to people who act as girls this age think people might act. It makes for a fun read and one with good lessons to go along with the enjoyment.
Girls can fly planes successfully. Girls do not get flustered in tight spots but use their good sense to get out of tight spots. Boys are interesting but confusing, so be careful when dealing with them. Stay away from men you have reason to distrust. These are all good things to put between the lines of a good story, and Carolyn Keene does just that.
For young women of the right age this old book still has a lot to offer. Nancy Drew is a good girl and a smart girl. I am glad to make her acquaintance.
overabundance of girly-girly sniveling and wah-wahing about boys and relationships. I rated this
book, comparing it to the first three. It did not fair well.
