"If you are reading this, then I am gone and this manuscript, per my instruction, has been delivered to the writer Chelsea Cain for publication as she sees fit..." With these words, Chelsea Cain's delicious and affectionate parody of the beloved Nancy Drew series is off and running. According to Nancy-or Nancy Drew-Nickerson, to be exact (yes, she married sweetheart Ned)-she was certainly not a fictional character, and Carolyn Keene was not a hard-working team of writers, as most people believe. In fact, Carolyn was Nancy's college roommate, who shamelessly plagiarized her tales from Nancy's exploits-and, in the process, got a whole lot wrong. For one thing, Nancy did get older, and each chapter of this book reveals Nancy and her chums solving a mysterious case in a new phase of life. Here are the daring escapes, brilliant guesswork, and dependable stock characters-including not only Bess, George, and Ned, but also interlopers such as the Hardy Boys and plucky nurse Cherry Ames-that have delighted generations of Nancy Drew fans. And here, also, are the parts of teen-sleuth life that you never saw: the secret romances, reckless driving, minor drinking problems, political action, and domestic drama that have, up till now, remained hidden from Nancy's adoring public.
