Nancy Drew Girl Detective was the main Nancy Drew series, meant to serve as a replacement for the Digest series. It was published from 2004 to 2012 by Aladdin books. For the first time, it featured stories in first-person narration, some dramatic changes to the lead characters, a more in-depth look at River Heights and its quirky citizens, and later in the series, mysteries spread into trilogies.

The series received harsh reviews from fans, who mostly criticized changes made to Nancy; these included making Nancy clumsy, absent-minded, and incompetent. The series received even more criticism in trilogy format, in which new complaints were given towards the lack of action, slow pacing, an overuse of bland, unmemorable characters, and the unnecessary spreading of the mysteries into three books.

These complaints, plus low sales, resulted in the series being cancelled in December 2011, and replaced with The Nancy Drew Diaries. The final book was published in February 2012.
