    1. very weak 3 starThis dairies book wasn't as good as the others; I was still glad I listened to it since it is part of the series. But although the others were a firm 3 (not bad but not really good either) this one was just mediocre to me. I found my thoughts drifting away as I listened and had to remind myself to get back into the story. And no you do not need to read the others in the series to read this one. I can be a stand alone book if need be.


    2. In this book Nancy goes on vacation with her friends. First her friend Jenna tells that that a figurehead at a museum went missing. Then, Nancy's frined George fell into the lake and almost drowned. Last a dinosaur statue almost fell and hits George in the head. In the end of the book Nancy found out that one of her friends took the figurehead. Nancy gets the figurehead back at the museum is saved!


    3. Not as good as the original Nancy Drew mysteries. Disappointing. It was slower-moving; I think that the 1st person voice was a poor choice. There’s an old writer’s adage that says “show your readers, don’t tell your readers”. It means that authors should describe characters’ behaviors to show you who they are instead of telling you. I.e list everything a character eats in one setting rather than say “she eats a lot”. This book was full of telling rather than showing. I also don [...]


    4. I enjoy these little reads, but the sabotage elements and basic plotline used this time were almost identical to a previous one that I read.


    5. Library copyNancy, Bess and George travel to Nantucket for a short break and to visit Bess's cousin Jenna, who has an internship at a whaling museum there. The exhibit on which Jenna has been working is vandalized, leading Nancy to use her investigative skills to determine what is going on. They find miffed interns, a director who is selling scrimshaw to antique stores, a rival museum with an irritated founder, and many other people who might want to sabotage Jenna. So much for vacation! Strengt [...]


    6. I had some problems with this book. I didn't like how some of the clues just landed in Nancy's lap and the culprit being painfully obvious. Also,the reader doesn't really get a explanation about how Nancy solved the mystery. But besides that, I really liked this one! It was very suspenseful and the mystery was very intriguing. I also liked how good of a detective Nancy was in this book and I loved the setting. So overall this book was very good and I really enjoyed it! 4 stars.

    8. So it was good! I always love reading Nancy Drew in the summer! Its one of my favorite traditions! his book just kept leaving you with cliffhanger probably explains why I finished it in less than 6 hours considering I was with my friends from 8-10. Can't wait to read the next one! I just love summer!
