The Silent Spy Awaits and What Does Nancy Drew Mean to People?

The time is here for the next Nancy Drew game! If you read my post talking about The Ghost of Thornton Hall you know that I love the Nancy Drew computer games. Yes, I’ll be talking about the next ND game in this post, but I’m also going to talk about what Nancy Drew means to me and many other people.

First, the game!

Nearly a decade ago Agent Kate Drew left home to neutralize a biochemical weapon in Scotland. While her assignment was a success, Kate died in a car accident. Or so we were told. Now the echoes of a similar plot reverberate and it’s up to you, as detective Nancy Drew, to thwart the sleeper cell and expose the truth about your mother’s tragic demise.*

Pre-orders begin on September 16th, but the game is available in stores on October 22nd.

Now what Nancy means to many people…

The first Nancy Drew book (Secret of the Old Clock) was published in 1930. This was during the great depression and many girls needed a positive role model. Nancy was a teenager going out and solving mysteries! She saw something wrong, and she stood up to it. She took risks, she went on adventures, and she solved problems. 

Today, Nancy is still a positive role model for girls! She still takes risks, she still goes on adventures, she still solves problems, and she still stands up for what’s right. Some girls read the books, some play the games, some do both! Nancy Drew has gotten people through hard times. She’s a positive influence! She shows that you should stand up for what’s right, what you believe in, and say no to injustice. 

Some people say that Nancy takes unnecessary risks or that she should stay home washing the dishes while the police does her work. It’s not about the danger, it’s about doing the right thing despite the danger. I believe that Nancy doesn’t need to be defended. She defends herself. She is Nancy Drew.

Nancy Drew has been a part of my life for a long time, and I’m really happy that she has been. Like I’ve said before, she’s a positive influence. I play the computer games, and since they’re interactive they really make you think! I really enjoy these games, and I plan to play them well into my adult years.

Nancy Drew Forever!
