Recommended to Simon by: Samantha Pellegrino
Read from January 17 to 28, 2011 — I own a copy

I love this book despite how old it is or how it seems very juvenile, even though Nancy is my age.
I read it for the first time back in Grade 7 and I fell in Love with the series, I have made it a mission to own all of them (including the Hardy Boys) i have only managed to read up to the 9th book however, so now with the help of this website and my own determination, I will read all of them.

I think it is safe to say that some of the crimes committed in this book, couldn't happen today due to technology and the police forces. I'm sure there are far more advanced ways of doing these things, but at times, it seems pointless.

A lost will, a missing notebook and a greedy family; make up the main conflicts that Nancy Drew faces.
The three thieves are an excellent plot twist and add a huge suspense rush. Sitting on the edge of the seat is what the result of these attributes in a juvenile mystery novel, create.
