This is a great book as I remember...I can't provide a description...other than Nancy Drew and her friends solve a mystery, about a spider sapphire. From what I remember it's a great book though. I would deffinitly recommend it.
I loved the Nancy Drew books when I was a child but realize now that they are very simplistic and really stretch the imagination. There is absolutely no way a young girl could accomplish the things Nancy does in these books. I guess if you're a tween, they'd be engaging but certainly not if you've actually lived for any length of time. I read this for a challenge (needed something published in 1967), otherwise I would never have picked this up.
Beautiful gift copy.
In this book Nancy goes on another wild journey. This book was really fun and it keeps you on the end of your chair. In the book Nancy tries to find out a mystery about a spider sapphire , and at the same time she is taking a trip to Africa and trying to find a firend's brother. The reason that I liked this book was because it has many descriptive words, and it gave lots of detail about how each person felt about a topic. Some reasons that I dislike this book was because in the story there were some misspelled words and the student on the trip that caused a lot of interruptions. While Nancy, her friends and students from her school were on the plane a girl name Gwen was told to sit down. She said "If I'm going to get killed I want to be standing up, not sitting down." Then the captain of the plane asked her to take her seat and she said "I'm going to have my father sue this airline!" Again and again she was told to take her seat, but she never did, until the airplane almost crashed!
My two favorite parts of the book was when Nancy found out wher Ned was and saved him, and when Nancy got to me a girl named Lilia Bulawaya. She was a great singer and friend. Lilia had asked Nancy to find her brother in Africa. Nancy agreed that she would try. Nancy gave another great mystery away. Well who knows maybe one day I might just turn out to be another Nancy Drew!
