Analyzing Nancy

Slate has an interesting article on up-dating Nancy Drew. One of the tidbits that popped out at me: In a new Nancy Drew series that began in 2004, Nancy Drew books have been written in the first person.

Is anyone else freaked out by the way first-person narrators monopolize kids' books, YA in particular? And I ask this having written six first-person books, myself.

Yes, I am, but it's pretty prevalent in adult novels too. Something to do with the modern sense of self, I suspect.
