Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Collection of Essays This is a collection of 9 essays by different authors studying the cultural influence of girls' series books in the first half of the 20th century.The series' studied include anne of green gables, isabel carleton, linda lane, automobile series, scouting novels, betsy-tacy, cherry ames, judy bolton and nancy drew. Two of the essays are about nancy drew - one on her own and the other compared to judy bolton. This collection of essays is an interesting read if you are looking for analysis - it is not a description of the different series',it reads more like a university english text.
