Wendy, 13, is a modern teen girl, so what book does she recommend reading? You may be surprised that she suggests a book series that was created in 1930!
A modern teen girl of her own time, Nancy Drew first appeared in books in 1930 and starred in a mystery series where she solves innumerable crimes. The series is still alive today in new adventure series like Nancy Drew and Clue Crew and even comic books where she hunts down vampires.
“It’s kind of fun to see how Nancy and her friends solve mysteries. You see the whole process,” Wendy said. “You could probably solve mysteries in real life after reading these.”
Wendy’s favorite mystery was a book in Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew series called "Scream for Ice Cream" and is about a stolen ice cream recipe.
“Nancy keeps her cool during all of the mysteries,” Wendy said. “She never panics.”
Can a modern girl in 2014 relate to a character writen in 1930? “Well, she is a modern girl like us,” Wendy said. “It’s not so different.”
