On this day, exactly 85 years ago, the first Nancy Drew book was released. Our favorite sleuth is still young, and solving mysteries to this day. She has gone from calling from phones in nearby drug stores, to calling on her cell phone. She has written letters and received mail from the mail carrier, to reading emails on computers. She has nabbed culprits with names like Buzby (The Scarlet Slipper Mystery) and Stumpy Dowd (The Bungalow Mystery) to capturing culprits with typical, modern everyday names. She once wore cloche hats, pumps, and a knee-length dress, but now is wearing jeans and t-shirts.
There are things about Nancy that have remained the same, though. She always finds the treasure, she nabs the culprit(s), she exposes the truth, and she still helps people. She is just as talented at sleuthing as she was back in the day, and she has all sorts of skills and experiences added to her resume. Nancy is like a modern-day super girl. And we are celebrating!
