Why can't the Hardy Boys get killed off, letting Nancy Drew solve the case?

Patty | 2971 comments A double-Murder is always more interesting anyways.

One of my friends has two little boys, and her comment on my FB post about this was that she couldn't wait until her kids were old enough to read the Hardy Boys. She had read the books, and Nancy Drew, while she was growing up as well. They're like classics in their own way.

Patty | 2971 comments When my oldest daughter was little, there was a series of Nancy Drew books that had her in third grade. At the end, you got the opportunity to solve the mystery before Nancy Drew gave us the reveal. If I remember correctly, there was a page that asked a few relevant questions to get you on the right track.

J.P. Choquette (jpchoquette) | 28 comments Oh wow. My childhood hero and the author (well, okay, ghostwriters) who inspired my love of mystery. I never got into the Hardy Boys and Trixie Belden was a little too chipper for me, but I wanted to grow up to be Nancy Drew and of course, drive her powder blue convertible. :)

Me too! Wanted to be Nancy Drew and those stories really cemented my love of reading!

Tammy I remember reading Nancy Drew in my youth. They have her T.V. show on CW. I haven't seen it, nice to see things live on.
