A plucky titian-haired” sleuth solved her first mystery in 1930. And how did she go from pulp heroine to icon? As beloved by girls nowadays as she was by their grandmothers, Nancy Drew has both inspired and reflected the changes in her readers' lives. Here, in a narrative with each of the vivid energy and page-turning pace of Nancy's adventures, Melanie Rehak solves an enduring literary mystery: Who created Nancy Drew? Eighty million books later, Nancy Drew has survived the Depression, World War II, at the same time as the sixties (when she was taken up getting a vengeance by women's libbers) to enter the pantheon of American girlhood.
