Nancy Drew: The Palace of Wisdom by Kelly Thompson
Nancy Drew is seventeen and good at everything, especially solving crimes. But her totally-in-control-and-obviously-running-perfectly-smooth-(but-not-really) life hits a snag when a mysterious message drags her back to the hometown she left behind. There she'll have to find out which of her friends are still her friends, which are enemies, and who exactly is trying to kill her...and (hopefully) stop them before they succeed.
The original series by author Carolyn Keene is available under children's fiction. The above is a Nancy Drew-inspired graphic novel, which has more ties to the new CW show that airs Wednesday, October 9, after the fourth season of Riverdale premieres. In the new show, according to IMDB, "Nancy Drew makes plans to leave her hometown for college after high school graduation but finds herself drawn into a supernatural murder mystery."
