I hate to admit that before this week I had never read a Nancy Drew book in my life. Now I can finally say I have. I joined the Nancy Drew Reading Challenge with the goal of reading all 56 Nancy Drew books. It’s March and I finally read the first one. That’s a lot to get read before the end of the year but I’m hopeful.

The Secret of the Old Clock is the introduction of Nancy and her family, and her new life as a detective. When Nancy watches a little girl nearly get hit by a car and then fall, she finds herself hearing the sad story of a family who was expecting an inheritance that never came. Nancy finds herself so attached to the little girl and her family that she begins to investigate what happened to the money.

It was a great introduction to the young Nancy Drew and her adventures. I have the next five books lined up to get reading on as well.
