Blame It All On Nancy: Mysteries Kids Will Love

Blame It All On Nancy: Mysteries Kids Will Love

By: Jan Bridges

I have loved mysteries since I was a child and it is all because of Nancy Drew! Nancy was my hero and, if I am honest, still is. Nancy could do anything. Flat tire? No problem! Nancy could fix it. Tree in the road blocking her roadster?  She will get around it. Nancy is strong and smart and nothing stops her. She is a great role model for young girls. Oh, and she can solve mysteries, too.
