Does anyone know a good place to look for these? My mom has the entire series minus one or two and then would like to find the correct color binding for a couple we have that don't match. any ideas?

I adore Cherry Ames books, but I've not read one in years. I literally sighed with happiness when I read this thread title.


Good luck.

I agree that this is a wonderful series.  I have fond memories of reading these when I was younger.

Cherry Ames is by far my favorite young adult series! I never liked Nancy Drew but was totally drawn to Cherry! You can buy them new now as well I found at Barnes and Noble at least. I just might have to get that set as well...paperbacks for use...old hardbacks for show! Thanks for the suggestions on places to look everyone!

so they've reprinted these? I think they were doing that with the Trixie Beldens but not sure. I've only read one of these a long time ago but liked it.

You brought back a lot of memories!  I was addicted to these books when I was young.  Can still remember bits and pieces from them.  Have the re-prints been updated and modernized?

I haven't seen the reprints in real life yet. but if you look online at Barnes and Noble they should come up. I think they are the same. The cover art looks kinda vintage too. I might go by the bookstore this weekend to see if they have them in stock.
