Today I'm 34 for the first time and I'm writing a book report review report on a Nancy Drew book. Times have changed, but some things remain. Nancy Drew books, for instance.

I loved reading Nancy Drew books while growing up. I happened to mention this to my second son and while at school he saw a Nancy Drew and thought of me. So sweet. Of course, since he was so happy to give it to me and use his library privileges to obtain it I was duty-bound to check in and see how Nancy is doing.

This falls into the category of 'x needs money' type of stories. In this case it's a place that is planning to run an operation to train seeing-eye dogs and do other things to help blind people. Their money is limited and they are working out of an old inn which had been converted to a house.

The problem is that twenty-five years previously a counterfeit money operation was run out of the place and suddenly some of the bills produced during that time are showing up now. There's also the standard

This was ok. I like that Marisa is blind but does so much detective work. The problem is it really sets up one character the whole book and at the end the villain comes out of no where.

it was good, an enthralling if slight story, but the characters are all engaging and the pages kept wanting to be turned by the story so that was good, and I learned a bit about counterfeit money
