About this product
- DescriptionIn the first in Maney's lovingly irreverent parody of the 1950s' girl adventure books, nurse Cherry Aimless' first vacation from her hectic career in a big-city hospital takes her to visit her spinster Aunt Gertrude in thrilling San Francisco. Wistfully trading her starched white cap and dress for a bright yellow poplin frock with a flared skirt, young Cherry takes to the highway, never imagining the gay adventures that await her. Imagine her surprise to learn that Aunt Gertrude has been kidnapped. Armed only with the contents of her purse and with the help of new chums Midge, Velma, and a dashing female police officer named Jackie, the plucky but incent Cherry must save her aunt, find a gaggle of missing nuns, and stop an illegal land grab, all under the warm gaze of her hero, girl detective Nancy Clue. And when the queer caper has ended, will there be a chance for Nancy and Cherry?
