I began reading the Trixie Belden series as a preteen after seeing my mom re-reading the copies she'd saved from her childhood sparked my curiosity.  I was immediately hooked by the characters and devoured every one of the books my mom or our local library had, eventually buying the rest of them online in my late teens and early twenties (there are 37 books in the series, the first 13 of which are currently in print as of June, 2010).      The series revolves around …

Trixie Belden is the title character in a series of 'girl detective' mysteries written between 1948 and 1986.
