Nancy drew comes into the 21st century with a cell phone, hybrid car, and sassy attitude. This case begins when Nancy and her friends come across a boat that had been missing for years. The supposedly missing owner mysteriously shows up to claim the contents of the safe that was on board, but Nancy is suspicious. She spends a few days tailing Mrs. Druthers to find out who the true heir is.

I was not super impressed with this book. All the characters were kind of shallow. She has a ditzy bonde friend, and a tough tom-boy fried. There is a mean girl from school who constantly pokes fun at them, but all of her jokes are really lame. Then Nancy herself is involved in this detective work, but is distracted by her handsome boyfriend, and not smart enough to charge her cell phone. I think it played too much into stereotypes. Although I wasn't a fan of this graphic novel, hopefully it could work as a springboard to the original Nancy Drew series, and on to other literature for young readers.
