Remember her? I know Sandy does, and Cece too. Tanya didn't know who she was, so I thought I'd introduce her. When I started reading mysteries, I began with Meg. I know, no one probably know about her - I don't remember much except that she was a little girl around 9 I think. Her books are out of print. Anyway, after Meg I wasn't quite ready for Nancy Drew, but there was Trixie who was about 14 when the series began and then grew to be about 15 when they were finished. Just the right age. She was cool. Trixie and her brothers Brian and Mart, along with friends Jim, Honey, Diana and Dan, belonged to a club named the Bob-Whites. They did "good" deeds along with solving the occasional mystery. The books I read came out in the 60s and may seem somewhat dated to today's kids (but so did Nancy Drew when I began reading them), but they are wonderful stories and have been recently reprinted. I'd suggest checking them out. Here's another link about Trixie Beldon.
