Title: Nancy Drew
Author: Rated: PG
With her magnifying glass and fingerprint powder in hand, Nancy Drew leaves River Heights for La-La-Land… but not to meet that guy on Smallville, as her boyfriend Ned fears. No, she’s out to solve one of the greatest mysteries ever: the death of movie star Dehlia Draycott. But the bigger mystery is how our perky, plaid-clad sleuth will fit in with the text-messaging teen queens of mean she meets at Hollywood High.
Nancy is an iconic girl detective with a passion for mystery and all things old. Small-town Nancy is about to experience a serious case of culture shock as she heads to Hollywood on an extended business trip with her father Carson Drew.
Having promised her father that she has given up sleuthing in favor of becoming a “normal” teenager, Nancy tries her best to resist the lure of the age-old mystery of famous actress Dehlia Draycott’s death. Living in Dehlia’s old mansion full of clues proves too powerful a force for Nancy to resist. Feeling completely out of place with high school peers who prove self-absorbed and obsessed with fashion, Nancy makes an unlikely friend in 12-year-old Corky, the brother of one of the meanest girls at school. Hormones and hero worship land Corky right in the middle of Nancy’s dangerous detective work and inspire some good old-fashioned jealousy when Nancy’s close friend Ned visits from River Heights.
Nancy’s deductive skills are as sharp as ever, and her inspired detective work will have a profound impact the lives of complete stranger Jane Brighton, her own father, and a host of others.
