About Nancy Drew

I like both the old version and the new version.

Old Version:

This version is centered in the time frame of the 1970s or so. There are about 65 books in this original version. Nancy Drew is a fictional amateur sleuth. In the original versions of the series, she is a 16-year-old high school graduate and amateur detective. In the series, she lives in the fictional town of River Heights with her father, attorney Carson Drew, and their housekeeper, Hannah Gruen. As a child -age ten – she loses her mother. As a teenager, she spends her time solving mysteries, some of which she stumbles upon and some of which begin as cases of her father’s. Nancy is often assisted in solving mysteries by her two closest friends: cousins Bess Marvin and George Fayne. Bess is delicate and very girly, while George is a tomboy. Nancy is also occasionally joined by her boyfriend Ned Nickerson, a student at Emerson College.

 

New Version:

This version is centered in more of this time (2018) or so. They are still in publishing, but right now I think there are about 40 books in this version. Nancy is aged to be 18-years-old and a high school graduate and amateur detective. She lost her mother at age three. Nancy is often assisted in solving mysteries by her two closest friends: cousins Bess Marvin and George Fayne. Bess is delicate and very girly, while George is a tomboy and very tech-savvy. Nancy is also more often joined by her boyfriend Ned Nickerson, a student at Emerson College, and Bess and George’s bofriends, Dave and Bert.
