"One thing is most certainly true, the country changed and Nancy Drew did too, with the exception that she is and was America's most loved teenage female gumshoe." (Cheryl and Joseph Homme, The Art of Popular Children's Books)
Makes it just fine!
Nancy Drew was NEVER about literary or artistic perfection - numerous changes, and a succession of authors would certainly make a literary patchwork quilt of it all.
But we love a patchwork quilt and it is still an enrichment and delight to love Nancy Drew Mysteries.
Nancy Drew stories, books, movies, games and merchandise sell significantly worldwide, and this one continues the triumph and as one who ran to the library to get the next in the series, more than 50 years ago, I have, from time to time, picked up the followups to be sure Nancy is still the winning light she is meant to be. She is still "good to go".
I liked the scenes in Italy - they inspire a desire to visit.
The discovery of the data that solved the crime.
Nancy Drew stories remain triumphant, and since "The Secret of the Old Clock" in 1930 Nancy Drew has been about a lot of things we need to preserve in America - and in the world.
