Where's Nancy?

Nancy was going to tell you about this big mystery, but she disappeared. Poof. Just like that.

So now Bess, Ned, and me, George, have the Case of the Missing Detective on our hands. We've got to find Nancy!

Let me tell you, this sleuthing thing is no joke. We've worked with Nancy on lots of cases, but we've never had to do it ourselves -- and the stakes

The thing about this Nancy Drew mystery that makes it stand out is the unique conceit of writing it from the perspective of the sidekicks. George and Bess narrate the whole thing, as the mystery is that Nancy herself has gone missing.

Granted, the mystery itself is not so difficult to solve, but the fact that it takes them the whole length of the book to work it out does kind of demonstrate why Nancy is the detective and her friends are the supporting cast. It also gives some nice perspective on

This follows the Girl Detective line of the Nancy Drew books, so it's more modern. In spite of it's watered down feel (just how I feel about the Girl Detective and Undercover Brother's line in general), the story was intriguing and the characters are just as amusing. I particularly enjoyed the idea of Nancy's friends solving the mystery of the missing Nancy.

This is the one that I'd wanted to read when I accidentally read the one about squash. I like this one a whole lot better. The pacing is sorta slow, but the plot is pretty decent, and it's definitely new seeing things from Bess and George's POV. This one I'd recommend

Very good book! i would have never expected what happened. It was a different book since Nancy was the one missing and George, Bess, and NEd and to find her! I recommend it to everyone!

An extra star since we got to see Bess, George, and Ned's point of view ... a fun, quick read in the style of the new "Nancy Drew: Girl Detective" book series --first person narrative.
Shreya=Drastically Random. Find the emoticon.
REALLY COOL! I liked how it would switch from Bess and George's perspectives, and I like how it clarified that Nancy's not the ONLY smart one. It was a little scary, but still good.

I remember reading this a long time ago and thought it was cool because this time Nancy wasn't solving the mystery...

Cool! It was somewhat (very, very little) boring without Nancy solving the mystery.
