The first series of books I devoured as a kid was Nancy Drew. I loved the suspense of every story and some of the mysteries were really scary for a girl of 10 years old. I could not put the books down I needed to know what Nancy would do next, or how was she going to save herself? Nancy was fearless and I loved it, reading her stories gave me the courage to ask questions to adults about topics I wanted to learn more about. She was such a strong character to model yourself after, Nancy always kept her cool and kept digging for the truth. After reading many Nancy Drew's I would look for other books with female leads character and grew up believing girls could do anything they wanted to if they set their minds too it!
