Kumari de Silva This is the eighth in the popular children's series about teenage sleuth Nancy Drew. The plots are rather predictable, and she "solves" her mysteries almost always by being in the right place at the right time, having clues handed to her on a silver platter.

That said, as a 10 year old, I found Nancy very cool. She can drive a car, fly a plane, goes off on weekend jaunts with her beau. But she never needs Ned to save her. And she never needs Ned to figure things out. As other reviewers have noted the original 30s versions are no longer politically correct. The African-Americans are referred to as "colored." The colored people in the story usually speak in dialect and have menially jobs. I see this more as an observation of the times than racist, but that's just me. Nancy has no knee-jerk bigotry, she's polite to everyone, even the dirt-bag wife of the sailor, lol.

She's Back Again...
Just as You Remember Her

The original editions are back -- The way they were first written.
Beginning in 1959, the Nancy Drew stories were updated, rewritten, and condensed, and these old editions went out of print.

Everything as changed since you first read these prized classics. But now Nancy (and Frank and Joe Hardy and Tom Swift and Judy Bolton) are back just as they were. With all the chums and roadsters. Why, Nancy's hair is even a golden bob again!

Rediscover the simple sense of time, rich language, and enlightening perspective on America's past that make these classic editions even more absorbing than when they were first published.
