The Motor Girls

by Margaret Penrose

Absolutely adorable, and appropriate for any Nancy Drew fan. This is the first volume of a turn-of-the-last-century mystery series for girls. Our spunky lead is a teenage girl who has just gotten her first "machine" -- slang for a giant honkin' automobile. Her strong, independent streak will appeal to today's girls, and their moms. There's plenty of action and comedy as silly boys challenge our girl to road races (she's very safety-minded), and financial dasterdly deeds begin to appear. There are several more books in this series, many of them available right here.
