This starter set is an excellent value for anyone who would like to introduce a girl to Nancy Drew. The Secret of the Old Clock is the first book in the series, and it does a nice job of introducing the character and giving us a glimpse into her adventurous spirit. The second book, Hidden Staircase, is perhaps my favorite Nancy Drew book of all time as it has all the great elements of a mystery, complete with a creepy old mansion.
Nancy started solving mysteries back in 1929 when she was 16. Within a few years, she had turned 18, the age at which she would remain for the duration of the series. But Nancy was a mature 18, very smart, self-possessed, shrewd, and unafraid. And I like that about her.
Nancy was definitely middle class (probably more like upper middle class), living in a big brick home set back from the road in the swanky part of River Heights, state unknown. She lived with her dad, Carson Drew, a prominent attorney, and Hannah, their housekeeper. That middle class stability gave Nancy the freedom she needed to do her own thing. And she took full advantage of it. She had her own blue convertible roadster, which was probably a big deal back in the 1930s for a girl her age. She had her own money, but no paying job; a credit card; and lots of opportunities most folks can only dream of, such as flying lessons and trips around the world (which she invited her friends along to boot). She also had a boyfriend, Ned Nickerson, who was a popular football player at Emerson University, state unknown.
There was no funny business between Nancy and Ned.Read more ›
