The lazy days of summer always seem to have young girls reading through the adventures of Nancy, her best friends Bess and George, and her slightly wooden headed boy friend Ned Nickerson. Ready to leap into her blue roadster, enabled by gobs of cash from her lawyer father, and handy with a revolver, Nancy is a mystery solving whiz.
Add Judge Sotomayor's name to the Nancy Drew fan club. Her interest in the law was sparked as a young girl by reading the Nancy Drew series. Sandra Day O'Connor, Hilary Clinton, Mary Tyler Moore, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as well as Barbara Walters and Fran Lebowitz cite her as an early primary influence on their lives.
The Nancy Drew series will be 80 years old next year.
HER games has released a free demo of the new Nancy Drew game Ransom of the Seven Ships:
