I was surprised that this book was more like the Grace Harlowe or Marjorie Dean series than Nancy Drew. For 1934, it features a lot of the same plot structure and women's college themes that showed up twenty years earlier, even down to the group of eight best friends from high school. Really good, but much less modern than I was expecting!

First-year college student Beverly Gray flits from one improbable circumstance to another. Beverly is a bit too much of a Mary Sue to be appealing, but it's still a fun read (for the laughs at all the ridiculous things that happen to her!). I liked the (sadly too few) times when the narrative was a bit sarcastic -- e.g., "Professor Adams, old Eagle-eye, as she was fondly (?) called by her students..."

This follows Beverly Gray in her freshman year at Vernon College. Some quite unbelievable things happen to her and she is a little too self-deprecating. The unbelievable things make for some amusement.

Er að endurlesa allan flokkinn. Þriðja stjarnan er eingöngu vegna nostalgíunnar. Hefði gefið þeim 4-5 stjörnur þegar ég var 10 ára.

So great for an avid reader of age 8-10, equally fun to read at age 48!
