Is Nancy Drew Still Sleuthing Today? — 4 Comments

  1. I loved Nancy Drew growing up and I still love reading books about women sleuths. I’ve recently been reading the Nancy Drew Clue Crew books for kids – a fun way to introduce young readers to simple mysteries. Your series sounds terrific, Beth. Thanks to both you and Karen for participating in the blog tour.

  2. Hi Beth!

    I recently read Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her by Melanie Rehak. I totally recommend it–its an absolutely fascinating story.

    Books about girl adventurers who didn’t exist to “get the man” were rare to non-existent when Nancy first came on the scene. I decided her enduring fascination is that she’s as plucky and independent as Jo March, but without all the duty, sadness, obligation–and of course, no mother!


  3. Even young guys were exposed to Nancy Drew. Always have enjoyed any well written mystery. Find some of the current women sleuths better presented than their male counter parts. Going to read your All That Glitters as sounds like a real mystery for us all. Thank you.
