I dug these books, but then I discovered Nancy Drew Files, which were way more exciting. There was sordid romance! There were perilous situations on every page! Nancy almost died on the regular! It was thrill ride after thrill ride, I tell you what.
Whether it was prim Nancy Drew or sassy Nancy Drew, she always looked hella-fabulous on the book covers. And so I say: Nancy Drew is a style icon no matter what the era.
