From River Heights to Sweet Valley...

I found a really cute Nancy Drew set on the bargain table at borders. I got it with the intention of giving it as a gift. (I know someone who collects them, and was going to tuck money inside as a birthday gift.) Anyway, I found myself re-reading them and does anyone else find the original Nancy Drew to be just like Elizabeth Wakefield?

Like, not just their physically perfect descriptions, but their "ultra good" personalities?
