Apr 10, Jodie rated it did not like it. This would have been good, but it seems the authors of this Nancy Drew book desired to push their views down the throat of pre-teens and teens.
Thank you very much, but I will decide if I agree with fox hunts or not!!! I like Nancy Drew books, but I don't really appreciate it when the authors shove things like evolution and the like down my throat They still have some stuff I don't like, but nowhere near the amount the newer ones have.
