    Great!!

    This book was so exciting! At first, the beginning was really slow and boring, but as time progressed, it was exciting, and I couldn't put it down for a second! It's the best next to The Secret of Shadow Ranch, and Password To Larkspur Lane.

    This was a really good book

    This is a really good book. It's like the 1 of the best in the series. If you like this book you would like the other book in this series. All the book is really intresting. You don't want to put down the book and after your done reading it you want to read more of the Nancy Drew book. Every chapter get more and more intresting. It's fun quick and easy to read the Nancy Drew book. I've read most of the series but i just want to read all of it and read them again and again. It gets so myterious but the tital of the chapter give away what will happen in the 1 chapter. My advice is to read it and read the rest of the series. ~~Liz~~
