To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Yes, this is a young reader's book but skip this. So many books so little time. Instead... Pick up the real Nancy Drew chapter books (there are over 50 to choose from!) and read to your children. It will be a more memorable, enriching experience/story for you and them.
My daughter loves the Nancy Drew series and the fact that they're eligible for AR points. I liked that I could buy the series for the Kindle and it automatically figured out which we owned, so I didn't re purchase those. Just wish it loaded them in order.

My seven year old daughter got hooked on Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew when she received a box set that included the first five books in the series;
The Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew Collection: Sleepover Sleuths; Scream for Ice Cream; Pony Problems; The Cinderella Ballet Mystery; Case of the Sneaky Snowman
. Being a huge fan of the original Nancy Drew series, I was thrilled to see that Nancy had been reinvented as a third grader, with her best buds, Bess and George. In this story, Nancy, Bess, and George are attending a three-day overnight camp at the local zoo. One of the camp activities is helping the zookeeper make toys for the animals. When the toys that the girls make by day disappear at night, the Clue Crew springs into action to uncover the identify of the thieving culprit.
The book is well written and includes several nicely illustrated pictures. The recommended age range is 6-9; Grades 1-4. My daughter is in Second Grade and is able to independently read this books (I should probably mention that she currently reads at a 4th Grade level.) When she first received the box set for her 7th birthday last summer, my husband and I would take turns reading the books with her. Now that she is in Second Grade she is able to read them independently. As a parent, I highly recommend the Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew books; they are interesting, thought provoking, entertaining, and are age appropriate.
