“ It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.“

I am re-reading this so that I feel more prepared to read Julia next week. I had completely forgotten how immersive and enthralling this book is. It is wasted on high school students who cannot appriciate it!

“Would a trip to the Mardi Gras interest you, Nancy, and also a mystery to solve?” Bess Marvin asked.

#FirstLineFriday @ShyBookOwl

Not sure how I feel about a definite article in front of Mardi Gras.

Side note: Mardi Gras in Mobile AL is older and tamer. IMO it would be more Nancy Drew‘s speed.

KathyWheeler I live in Mobile and agree with you about the older and tamer Mardi Gras, although we have had a couple of shootings at parades. 2mo
Sace @KathyWheeler I hate to hear that. Mobile prides itself on the more family friendly Mardis Gras doesn‘t it? 2mo
KathyWheeler @Sace Yes, it does. I‘ve lived here for over 30 years, and usually our Mardi Gras is safe. Those shootings were a shock. 2mo
Sace @KathyWheeler 😢 and hello neighbor! (Sort of.) 2mo
