    In this first novel by Carolyn Keene Nancy Drew makes her debut in trying to find a missing will. But if she doesn't succeed, all hope is lost for some newly made friends. An amazing book, full of action and adventure.

      Nancy Drew book 1 is awesome as book 2 is. I love how the old lady can't remember where the old man hide the well.

                  It was about a girl detective named Nancy Drew on the hunt for a missing will (and some stolen objects) so Josiah Crowly's cousin's could have the money he left behind instead of the mean Tophams getting it. I really liked the book and recommend it for 8-11 readers. :D
