The Hidden Staircase (Nancy Drew #2)
In seeking to solve the mysterious happenings in an old stone mansion, Nancy uses her courage and powers of deduction and tackles a situation that would have appalled a far older person.
I'm not going to try to find every Nancy Drew book I've read since there are too many to count, but I have great memories of carrying around my Mom's hardbound copies everywhere- car trips, doctor's appointments, etc. But nothing beat curling up with one during summer vacation. =)
