It was my first Nancy Drew book. And then the journey just began. At that time I would have given it 4 stars but I was ignorant about the great books which awaited my reading later. Its a good book for children.

I read a lot of Nancy Drew books while growing up, but this was my hands-down, all time favorite... because it was set in my hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming! I probably read it 15 times...
