My Throwback:The Secret Of The Old Clock(Nancy Drew Series # 1) by Carolyn Keene
Plot:The book starts with a little girl meeting with a small accident, and Nancy rescuing her and carrying her back to her house. Nancy soon finds out that the little girl has no parents and lives with her aunts-the Turner sisters. The Turner sisters are poor, and say that they cannot afford to pay for their niece’s education much longer. By asking the Turner sisters a few questions, Nancy discovers that a man named Mr. Crowley (their good friend and well wisher who’s dead) had made a promise to mention their names in his will and let them have a good amount of money so that they would not suffer after he died.
But the will says that all his property should be left with the Tophams-an ungrateful family whom Mr. Crowley had not really liked.
This exciting mystery is about Mr Crowley’s new and undiscovered will. Its existence is uncertain, but many good-hearted people along with the Turners who suffer due to the old will are sure that Mr. Crowley has written a new will. Determined Nancy Drew has decided to solve the mind-boggling mystery of where the new will is hidden.It’s been so long I read Nancy Drew….oh, the first time I started with her…my dream character (I was 8),I think still I will like her the same if I stsrted reading again…
