    My very first Nancy Drew since 17 years ago and this brought a lot of memories to me! Im so glad i pick it up again! I've learned new things in this book, which is the physics behind a hot air balloon. hahaha. in this book, Nancy and her friends are having fun on a hot air balloon when unexpected happened after they landed. The Adventure begins. Its a good book to be read in one sitting. My very first Nancy Drew since 17 years ago and this brought a lot of memories to me! Im so glad i pick it up again!

    I actually learned a bit about hot air balloons. Didn't realize that was why they needed to be so big! I actually learned a bit about hot air balloons. Didn't realize that was why they needed to be so big!

    Despite Nancy getting on my good side with words like "Physics is fun" and "Time to Innovate!" I just do not care for graphic novels. I kept thinking how the Nancy Drew books I grew up with were so much more vivid. Having said that, I do see the appeal in this graphic novel for upper elementary kids who aren't big fans of reading. The graphics are in color and a little edgy, the characters are modern and fun, the friendships in the story are fun, and the mystery is engaging.

The graphics are in color and a little edgy, the characters are modern and fun, the friendships in the story are fun, and the mystery is engaging. In my classroom I would use this book as an independent read for students who are not into reading yet, hoping it will get them to take up more reading. Material wise I would peg this story at fifth grade, but it could be interesting for slightly older and younger readers as well. This story begins with Nancy hanging upside down from a hot air balloon as a man who just stole a million dollars is making his get away. She throws her phone into the basket because it has a gps tracking device on it. They neatly find the balloon, wrap up the case, and Nancy prevails.

    Nancy and her friends are out in a boat on a lake. The lake disappears into a sinkhole and the boat ends up stranded in mud. This allows them, though, to see a boat that had been sunk and this leads into the mystery. They find a treasure on the boat. Mr. Drew checks on the boats owners to determine who the treasure belongs to now since the owners actually died in the sinking. An old woman claims that the she is the relative that is supposed to get the treasure. The woman is very nasty, though, a Nancy and her friends are out in a boat on a lake. The lake disappears into a sinkhole and the boat ends up stranded in mud. This allows them, though, to see a boat that had been sunk and this leads into the mystery. They find a treasure on the boat. Mr. Drew checks on the boats owners to determine who the treasure belongs to now since the owners actually died in the sinking. An old woman claims that the she is the relative that is supposed to get the treasure. The woman is very nasty, though, and Nancy does some checking up on her, almost being knifed in the process. It's possible the woman might have killed her husband. However, not everyone who is there appear to be in the story, and it all leads to Nancy being caught and tied up while the crook tries to make the typical getaway. Mr. Drew, though, plays an important role in stopping him and saving Nancy. A different type of story for the series.

    This is a highly entertaining book; the action is fun and vivid. On the downside, the mystery is very thin (almost nonexistent). I thought Nancy's hair-raising escape was plausible, but your mileage may definitely vary ;-). (Finished 2009-09-18 0:29 EDT) This is a highly entertaining book; the action is fun and vivid.
