That original heroine, though, is a far cry from the well-bred ’50s-style debutante who appears in the ubiquitous yellow-spined volumes on bookstore shelves today. Back in the ’30s, she was sarcastic, sometimes hot-headed. She carried a gun and drove a fabulous roadster with abandon — not merely “as fast as the law allowed.” She second-guessed herself, imperfect as anyone else, but could get herself out of dangerous scrapes alone, if need be.

Sara’s Insight: Interesting article. Makes me want to read the original Nancy Drew books.
