      All the Nancy Drew books are really good, and this one is awesome! Nancy Drew's father is a lawyer, and Nancy sometimes helps him on cases. Soon Nancy finds herself being way more unsafe than she thought, and it turns really good! Read this book!

        I have always been into mysteries, and when I discovered that I owned this book, I was super excited to sit down and read it! This is Nancy's very first mystery, and it starts when the sleuth meets three families in financial distress because they were not given money from a friend's will. Nancy Drew finds this very suspicious, thus taking her around town and up to a lake where she finds trouble! I am so excited to begin this series!

          Never have read Nancy Drew before and I really enjoyed it. In the beginning I thought it was boring but after I read through a few chapters I was hooked. Once you read the first book you have to read the next one. Nancy Drew Secret of the old clock is great.
