A few years ago, I saw the Nancy Drew movie while on an airplane and wanted to be her. I liked her sense of style. I liked that she was really good at solving mysteries. I liked that she was nice and didn’t fit in to her new surroundings. And she had a perky personality and was a little nerdy, really. And of course she’s super-cute. So if I could go back and live my life over, I think it’d be pretty cool to be Nancy Drew.
Nancy Drew and The Mystery at Lilac Inn was one of my first books. In it, someone impersonates Nancy. I think that bit of “transformation” has stuck with me.
