It’s been many, many years (20?) since I’ve read a Nancy Drew book, and I’d forgotten how much fun they can be. Nancy, Bess, and George have all they need for the perfect spring break — great weather, nice beaches, good looking guys, and a mystery. Nancy arrives just in time to see her friend run down in the street and witness the friend’s room being searched. And if she resisted the urge to find out what was going on, she wouldn’t be Nancy Drew. The storyline is actually still relevant, and if ...more
Nancy Drew has been my all time favorite teenage sleuth. In Hit and Run Holiday Nancy tires to go on vacation with her two best friends George and Bess and wants to visit an old friend.

The transition into moderness with the Files worked better than the later Mysteries, and none of the books which I've read sound like travel guides. However, Nancy and her friends do seem a a bit like the Wakefield twins with their stunning beauty, ability to attract any guy and mysterious links with famous people.
I read a few books in this series in the late 80s. I can't remember a single title, so I'll just throw this one onto my "Tweens of the 80s" shelf for good measure. This series didn't leave nearly as big of an impression on me as Sweet Valley High.
I was able to finish this one. It was good, but it made me realize that Nancy is a joke.

Nancy is dumb, George is dumber, and Bess is dumbest. Ned is stupid. These 4 couldn't save themselves from a roach.
Quick moving and very eventful storyline. Not the best on character but it is a short book. Lot of fun though.
