Again, read this when I was a kid, like 7 years back. Actually I never finished with this one for some reason. But I remember it being nice. Maybe some years from now, I'll go back to these again. :) Hehe :P
if you are a fan you will like it, but otherwise, it depends what kind of books you like, at the beggining it is a little weird... But, the ending is pretty cool.

It was a nice book, at times and points I god bored but it was a nice experience to read Carolyn Keene's book.
It's smashing. The best part was when Nancy, disguised as Neum, and Bess and George go to play poker.
Nancy Drew are great books! I love them I want more of them i already have #9-#16
