Nancy Drew is seventeen and good at everything... ESPECIALLY solving crimes. But her totally-in-control-and-obviously-running-perfectly-smooth-(but-not-really) life hits a snag when a mysterious message drags her back to the hometown she left behind. There she'll have to find out which of her friends are still her friends, which are enemies, and who exactly is trying to kill her...and (hopefully) stop them before they succeed.

KELLY THOMPSON (Hawkeye, Star Wars, Rogue & Gambit) and JENN ST-ONGE (Giant Days, The Misfits) team up to present an all-new modern spin on a classic mystery icon!


I have been so giddy when I received an email from NetGalley said that I been approved to read and review an eARC of Nancy Drew's graphic novel. Not only that, this is my first time reading a graphic novel which I am super excited and start to read right away. 

Nancy Drew: The Palace of Wisdom is really really fun and very enjoyable to read. I love the mystery that Nancy and her friends need to uncover and finding ways to solve the case. Every character in this book is awesome, funny and very loyal to each other. I love LOVE their friendship. Well, Nancy, Nancy - the smart, awesome, genius girl as always. I remember that I used to dream to be like Nancy. How awesome it is to solve a mysterious thing/cases. Reading this definitely brings back the nostalgia. 

I love Kelly's writing. The story is very easy to follow, the pace is definitely good and the most important is that Kelly's writing made me glued to the book and I have to force myself to take it easy not to rush just to get indulge with the stories. Okay fine, I miss reading Nancy Drew's novel that is why to get to read Nancy Drew's story again is great and even better, it is in a graphic novel that makes the whole experience wonderful. The story is beautifully illustrated. I love the illustration. It is great. I, honestly looking forward to reading next in the series. If you are a fan, Nancy Drew, you might want to pick Nancy Drew: The Palace of Wisdom that is written by Kelly Thompson, illustrated by Jenn St. Onge.
