Mansion Mystery

Now that school’s in session, some of us may want to watch a fun school-related movie to help us get excited about the new school year. A great school movie that Iā€™ve recently seen is the new movie, Nancy Drew.

Back to the Books

This Nancy Drew movie derived from the Nancy Drew book series which began in 1930 with The Secret of the Old Clock. As of 2001, The Secret of the Old Clock alone had sold over 2.7 million copies. Over 550 Nancy Drew books have been written since she completed her first mystery. There is a series for children under ten, and young teens. Too old for that? No problem! Nancy Drew also has a series geared toward high schoolers and even collegeage girls! Amazon has a great selection of Nancy Drew books.

These books concentrate on solving various mysteries with Nancy as the lead, but with others chipping in to help as well. While some of the story lines and friendships in the series build on previous books, each book is a separate mystery, allowing the reader to skip books without becoming confused.

Nancy Drewā€“ā€“the movie

Nancy Drew is a fun movie to watch with a friend, a younger sibling, a parent, or a grandparent. The movie is simple and fun enough to appeal to a younger audience and has enough substance and timeless appeal to attract the older viewers.

Nancy Drew is a smart, confident, and friendly high school detective. In this mystery movie, Nancy and her father temporarily move from River Heights to Los Angeles, where Nancy enrolls in a new school. She sews her own retro-inspired clothing, drives a little blue convertible, and befriends a twelve-year-old boy named Corky who tries to help her solve her latest mystery. The case? A mysterious death in the mansion Nancy and her father are currently living in. This wholesome teen tempts people’s taste buds with homemade sweets in order to get information she needs to help her solve her case. Does it work? Watch the movie and find out!

Titus 2:7-8: “In all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us.” This year, let what you don’t watch make a statement about who you are!
