Nancy Drew Mystery Stories by Carolyn Keene was one of my favorite book series when I was growing up. It was the first mystery series I ever read. I decided to revisit my childhood by rereading this series, starting with, The Secret of the Old Clock.
Now, unfortunately, I decided to reread these books in the Kindle ebook format. While ebooks are my favorite, this book did not transfer over well. There were a few pages that were missing and a couple were cut off on the sides. However, I was still able to understand and follow the story line which is what mattered. And, as I was reading, I remembered the plot from when I read it originally.
Nancy Drew was a wonderful heroine for her time. The Secret of the Old Clock is not as engaging as other mystery books nowadays, but it is still an awesome way to start out the mystery genre.
In this book, Nancy is on the hunt for a missing will. Through twists and turns, Nancy makes new friends, discovers the true will, and does so without losing her dignity or her poise. Even when she is locked up by the bad guys, she remains cool and collected.
This series was better when I was a child but I still love it now.
