I liked the Donna Parker stories because she was a regular girl. She's younger than Nancy Drew, so she has to go to school and doesn't drive. She has the 1950s nuclear family of 2 parents and Jimmy, her younger brother. Unlike Nancy Drew, the Dana Girls, Trixie Belden and Robin Kane, her family is not wealthy, nor do they have wealthy friends. Even though Donna was "regular" she got to do things I didn't, like go to a sleep away camp, or visit family across the country.That's where I lived vicariously through her.Check out this guy making the moves on Donna! Maybe I'll use the picture on a valentine!
Did you read any Donna Parker books, or any of the others I mentioned? Which were your favorites?
Now you can go check out all the vintage goodness that Colorado Lady and the other VTT participants are sharing this week. So far I've seen some great kitchen gadgets, adorable brown bears on drinking glasses, and fun decorations for Valentine's Day.
Don't forget my wristlet giveaway ends tomorrow, and the book giveaways end in 2 weeks.
