    GHOST STORIES
    What strange dark secrets can a college professor reveal -- after she has risen from the grave? Do dogs howl at the moon ... do their eyes glow in the night -- one hundred years after their death? What evil power lurks in the fortune-teller's den -- embodied in the sinister form of a terrifying froglike creature?

    Prepare to lock your doors and dim your lights. The sound you hear is the beating of your own heart. Nancy Drew is about to face some of her most challenging cases ever -- six frightening and unforgettable encounters with the unknown ...


    GETTING CLOSER (???)
    Nancy's stunning exposé in the Wilder Times about the cultlike group REACH is making headlines. But that's certainly not the only news on campus. The breaking story concerns Will Blackfeather, whose exhibit of Native American artifacts could turn into a disaster -- if Nancy doesn't find out who's stealing the show.

    For Bess, the story is Paul, who sent her on a treasure hunt, in which she's bound to make some unexpected discoveries. Ginny and Ray are also looking to find something special together...if her parents don't stand in the way. As for Nancy, item number one is still Jake. He's taking her out to celebrate her success, and if she's willing, he'll do it with a passion!


    THE DOUBLE HORROR OF FENLEY PLACE (#79)
    World-famous director Hank Steinberg is filming a horror flick in Nancy's hometown of River Heights. The movie tells a spine-tingling story about a haunted house. Most shocking of all, though, is what's going on across the street at an old Victorian mansion called Fenley Place.

    Whatever happens on the movie set is mysteriously duplicated in the mansion: red smoke billows from the chimney, a ghostly figure appears in the window, and blood oozes from the walls. The special effects are a real scream, but Nancy must find out who is behind them before the movie -- and the mansion -- reach the final, horrifying climax!


    THE CASE OF THE VANISHING VEIL (#83)
    When Nancy attends a wedding in Boston, she encounters a marriage marred by mischief. The groom may have stolen the bride's heart, but a thief has made off with her antique lace veil!

    From a mansion in Cape Cod to a museum of witchcraft in Salem, Nancy, Bess, and George follow a trail of intrigue and deceit across the New England countryside. They uncover the shocking story behind the wedding-day prank -- and a $60 million mystery behind the vanishing veil!


    THE SECRET OF SHADY GLEN (#85)
    Shady Glen was no different from any other cemetery -- maybe a little spooky, but harmless nonetheless. At least that's what Nancy thought until she stumbled onto a treasure map...and stumbled into a world of trouble.

    The map leads Nancy into a network of underground passageways, where she uncovers a series of clues to a recent outbreak of robberies and the location of a long-lost fortune in gold. She follows the hidden tunnels into the cold, dark heart of the cemetery and comes face-to-face with the chilling secret of Shady Glen!


    THE CLUE IN THE ANTIQUE TRUNK (#105)
    Nancy has come to White Falls, Massachusetts, to visit her former neighbor, Vera Alexander. The town is rich in history, and Vera wants to preserve a piece of its past. But her plan to convert the old Caulder Cutlery factory into a museum turns suddenly ominous when someone threatens her life.

    Why was Vera's antique trunk stolen? What dark secrets has she unwittingly disturbed? The answers are hidden in the past. Fifty years ago the owner of Caulder Cutlery was killed by his own knife -- and Nancy knows that before she can solve the present-day case, she must first uncover the haunting truth behind an old-fashioned murder.

But the break-in is only the beginning of a much bigger and more brazen teddy bear caper.

    The attempted theft of Bess's own bear -- a replica of one of the antiques -- leads Nancy to believe that more is at stake than a couple of burgled bears. For Nancy knows that even something as innocent as a teddy bear can be stuffed with intrigue!


    MESSAGE IN THE HAUNTED MANSION (#122)
    Nancy, Bess, and George have joined the Drews' housekeeper, Hannah Gruen, on a trip to San Francisco.

    Nancy suspects that there is another force at work -- greed. According to legend, a fortune in long-lost gold is hidden on the property, and someone is determined to take it. But in a house full of trapdoors and secret tunnels, falling glass and suspicious fires, finding the truth won't be easy. One misstep, and Nancy won't stand a ghost of a chance!

    THE CASE OF THE CAPTURED QUEEN (#147)

Two of the best young players in the world -- Greta van Leeuwen and Donna Winston -- are set to face off in a battle of wits and nerves. But as Nancy soon discovers, the action isn't just on the game board. First, someone deliberately ruins the opening ceremony. Then Greta's sister mysteriously disappears!

    Greta must win if she wants to see her sister alive again, and as the tournament progresses, the tension builds. The kidnapper is a grand master of menace and deception, and it's up to Nancy to make all the right moves in this deadly game.

    Nancy can hardly believe it. While visiting an amusement park owned by the world-famous Royal Chocolates Company, her friend Bess tears open a million-dollar candy wrapper in a contest. But when they go to collect, they're told that someone else has won. And then they're accused of tampering with the winning wrapper!

    Something is rotten in chocolatetown. The proof comes when Nancy and her friends are treated to a near-death experience in the park's animal safari. Someone's pulling a million-dollar swindle, and getting Nancy and her friends out of the way seems to be the icing on the cake.


    MYSTERY AT MOORSEA MANOR (#150)
    There's nothing like riding a horse across the beautiful English countryside, and Nancy has been looking forward to this vacation. But the danger begins even before she arrives at stately Moorsea Manor. Someone steals a road sign, sending Nancy down a dark, twisting road to nowhere. When she finally finds the inn, she's almost killed by a bronze statue dropped from a second-story window!

    The owners tell her that there have been other "pranks" as well. But someone's going to get hurt -- and that means Moorsea Manor will be out of business. Now it's up to Nancy to find the culprit, before the guest list becomes a casualty list!


    THE LEGEND OF THE EMERALD LADY (#154)
    Swimming, sailing, and snorkeling are all that Nancy, Bess, and Ned expect when they visit old friends at their nineteenth-century plantation, Sugar Moon. But when a strange man appears, brandishing a cutlass, and Nancy discovers traces of intruders, her curiosity is aroused. Soon she comes across a faded love letter with clues to the hiding place of a long-dead pirate's precious gift -- a fabulous emerald necklace.

    Many colorful island characters have a serious stake in finding the treasure, and Nancy barely escapes from their traps, on land and at sea. Then, just as Nancy locates the necklace, it's about to slip from her grasp forever!


    THE CRIME LAB CASE (???)
    Nancy gets Bess, George, and Ned to help out with a special program for high school students, a "chemystery" camp. They'll visit a forensics lab, a drug company, and a university to see how science is used to solve crimes. Then they'll use what they've learned to work on a made-up case.

    But the mystery begins even before the program starts when the professor who runs it suddenly falls into a coma. Now Nancy's in charge -- of the made-up case and the real one. Strange encounters of the dangerous kind and a list of promising suspects test all her talents of deduction. From the tiniest clue on a carpet to real menace in a quarry, Nancy's crime lab is bubbling with trouble!


    THE MUSIC FESTIVAL MYSTERY (#157)
    For Nancy and her friends, Worldbeat Weekend at Emerson College is supposed to be fun. Nancy gets to spend time with her boyfriend, Ned, and everyone plans to enjoy music and food from around the world. But the two candidates running to be the next president of IFC, both from rival countries, accuse each other of smearing their campaigns with dirty tricks -- and the chaos begins.

    Missing money and collapsing tents are just the start of the trouble. As tensions rise, the weekend spirals toward disaster. The local press is sniffing around. A public scandal would ruin IFC, and only Nancy can uncover the clues to track down the culprit in time!


    THE SECRET OF THE FIERY CHAMBER (#159)
    The ancient Japanese art of raku pottery is highly dramatic -- the colorful one-of-a-kind pots are pulled from the kiln, glowing and red-hot. But when Nancy and her friends visit a local crafts village, Bess is the one who nearly goes up in flames when she's showered with sparks! And that's only the beginning.

    Nancy's been alerted by Theresa Kim, a rising young artist at the village, that someone is producing brilliantly made fakes and selling them as antiques -- for lots of money. Now the pressure is on for others to join the illegal operation. When Nancy starts to investigate, she discovers that amid the beautiful treasures lurks a very clever -- and dangerous -- counterfeiter. If Nancy doesn't watch her step, she may be the one going up in smoke!


    THE CLUE ON THE CRYSTAL DOVE (#160)
    On Gramercy Park in New York City, the magnificent Van Hoogstraten mansion with its priceless collection of glass birds is about to open to the public. Nancy, Bess, and George are invited, but a series of sinister events puts everything in chaos. When the centerpiece of the collection, a beautiful crystal bird, is stolen, Nancy gets on the case.

    From family members with motives to keep the house, to an antiques dealer with a personal grudge, suspects abound. And when Nancy goes to the family's abandoned camp in the Adirondack forest, she zeroes in on the truth. In a violent nighttime thunderstorm on a solitary lake, Nancy confronts the culprit. The case is solved -- if she can get to shore alive!


    LOST IN THE EVERGLADES (#161)
    Visiting an old friend in Florida, Nancy, Bess, and George are awed by the beauty of the Everglades. But Jade Romero, a young park volunteer, is missing. She went backcountry camping and never returned. When Nancy agrees to search for her, she also learns about a priceless Native American statue of a panther hidden in the wilderness.

    A clue leads Nancy to Panterra Corporation, which is developing a big mall at the edge of the Everglades. Then a close escape on the road and a threatening note convince Nancy to search the backwoods. Deep in untamed country, alligators are menacing the girls -- but the worst danger is coming from enemies they never suspected!


    THE CASE OF THE LOST SONG (#162)
    While visiting Chicago, Nancy, Bess, and George bring some items to the Old Can Be Gold show to see what they're worth, just for fun. In George's old tape recorder, a dealer finds a rare early tape by a famous rock group. But before George can get it insured, it's stolen -- like many other items brought to the show!

    From a luxury condo on Lake Shore Drive to a hot blues club, Nancy discovers a mix of suspects. There's a seedy dealer, an ambitious publicist with access to the show's database, a talented singer in need of money, and drop-dead gorgeous twin brothers, one a top appraiser and the other a gifted photographer. Nancy's got to wind up the case -- before a desperate con artist erases her for good!


    THE CLUES CHALLENGE (#163)
    Nancy and her friend George are visiting Emerson College, courtesy of Nancy's boyfriend, Ned. His fraternity is eager to win the Clues Challenge, an athletic treasure hunt sponsored by a local sporting goods store, so the girls join Ned's team. But accidents, dirty tricks, and computer warnings threaten to shut down the whole event.

    Nancy suspects that someone has cheated by giving out the answers to the clues. Now she's investigating a pushy reporter, a jealous star athlete, a nervous store owner, and a snooty sorority president. Someone's got a secret agenda to win at any cost -- and Nancy's skiing right into an avalanche of trouble!


    THE MYSTERY OF MOTHER WOLF (#164)
    Nancy, Bess, and George are staying at a rustic lodge in Wyoming, looking forward to fun winter sports like skiing and dogsledding. But their vacation plunges into mystery when Rainbow, the lodge's pet tame wolf, suddenly disappears, leaving her five newborn pups motherless.

    Then Nancy learns that the lodge owners are creating a wolf sanctuary on their land -- and not everybody is happy. Was stealing Rainbow meant to be a warning? As Nancy investigates, her suspects include a hostile neighbor, a young wolf expert, and a handsome ranch hand. But if she's not careful, someone in the white wilderness will snow her under for good!


    Set high above the river, the grand old Pennington estate is the perfect place for an arts colony. College students can work with established artists; and the owner, elderly Marianna Pennington, gets to keep her home. But when Rhoda Benton, the colony's director, gets a disturbing threat, Nancy and Bess start hunting for an elusive suspect.

    From the owner's nephew, who wants to build condos on the property, to a handsome young artist determined to break all the rules, there's no lack of candidates. But Nancy's best lead comes from someone who wants to remain anonymous -- someone she'll have to meet at midnight at the edge of a cliff.


    MYSTERY BY MOONLIGHT (#167)
    A charming lakeside cottage should be the perfect vacation spot for Nancy and her friends -- until Bess becomes convinced that they're sharing the place with ghosts. Strange thumps in the attic put them all on edge -- except there is no attic. Even worse, their living neighbors are giving them grief.

    A pair of bird-watching photographers sets dangerous traps in the woods, a summer camp director chases Nancy and Ned off his property, and the assistant curator of a nearby Native American museum warns them to stay away from an ancient burial ground. Then a surprising discovery reveals a long-lost mystery -- and a family secret as black as night.


    BIKE TOUR MYSTERY (#168)
    Nancy, Bess, and George are all geared up for a bike tour in Ireland. They're looking forward to spectacular scenery, romantic ruins, local entertainment, and, at the end of the day, cozy inns to welcome them. But it isn't long before the three friends realize that they're riding with danger.

    From the moment they arrive at the airport, someone seems to be targeting the tour members, especially the two teen sisters from Australia. Even worse, not all the cyclists are what they appear to be. As the group bikes along sheep-filled roads and steep seaside cliffs, the menace mounts. Nancy knows that if she makes one wrong turn she'll be on a detour to disaster!


    MISTLETOE MYSTERY (#169)
    Nancy's friend Bess has been hired by Special Effects, a River Heights company, to decorate Albemarle's department store for the holidays. When Bess discovers that her friend Ali Marie is now working at the store, she's thrilled -- the two of them can have lunch and try on clothes for fun! But when some dresses are swiped, Ali is accused of stealing, and the party's over.

    Sure of her friend's innocence, Bess calls in Nancy to help find the real thief. With all the suspects and misleading clues, Nancy and her friends are running in circles -- and the holiday shopping rush isn't helping! Can they figure out the identity of a clothes-hungry kleptomaniac before the holiday season turns sour?


    NO STRINGS ATTACHED (#170)
    Nancy, George, and Bess are going on a vacation to Paris, and Nancy's father pulled a few strings to get the girls some quaint accommodations:
    a tiny top-floor flat in a small three-story house on the Ile Saint Louis. The first floor of the building is a puppet theater, museum, and shop, owned by twenty-seven-year-old Mimi Loiseau, who lives on the second floor.

    Mimi's great-grandmother had always hinted at a unique family treasure. She died before she could tell Mimi what, or where, it was. Now someone is stealing puppets and vandalizing apartments. Could this someone be looking for the long-lost treasure? Nancy's on the scene just in time to help save Mimi's business -- and to make sure they all get home in one piece!


    INTRIGUE AT THE GRAND OPERA (#171)
    The American Grand Opera has come to River Heights to perform Tosca, Aida, and The Marriage of Figaro, and Nancy's friend Bess is going to be a chorus extra. It's all so exciting for the girls; the costumes, the music, the glamor! Little do they expect, though, the drama that will take place backstage. When a falling sandbag from the scenery catwalk nearly misses the two female stars of the opera during a dress rehearsal, Nancy begins to suspect foul play.

    As it turns out, the falling sandbag isn't the first incident of the tour. In the dressing room, Nancy finds out that rival singers Rosacrucia Alba, the hot new soprano, and Marta Willentz, an older member of the company, have been involved in a few scary situations. As rehearsals continue and the threat to these singers increases, Nancy scrambles to determine why someone is trying to ensure that only one singer will be the star of these shows.


    THE RIDING CLUB CRIME (#172)
    Elsa, a friend of Nancy and George's and a counselor at Green Spring Pony Club's summer camp, invites the girls for a ride one afternoon. Along the way, Elsa gushes about how a team of campers will compete in a regional pony club rally. If they win, they'll go to the national competition! But Elsa's excitement quickly fades when Nancy's horse falls into a ditch, and it's clearly a case of sabotage. This prompts Elsa to tell Nancy about some sinister happenings on the camp's grounds. Is someone trying to hurt the campers -- or the camp?

    Disguised as a counselor, Nancy tries to figure out who's behind the vicious accidents. And as they become more devastating, Nancy realizes she needs to move quickly. Will her sleuthing skills be enough to keep this camp's horses and their riders on track?


    DANGER ON GREAT LAKES (#173)
    Nancy, Bess, and George are going on a cruise around the Great Lakes for a fantastic end-of-summer vacation! As soon as the girls set foot on the ship, though, they smell something fishy. Their new friend Amber is upset because her boyfriend, Craig, is neglecting her. After a little investigating on her friend's behalf, Nancy learns that Craig is really a detective. He's been busy hunting for a mastermind diamond thief who may well be on the ship. And it turns out Craig can use some help.

    Soon Nancy's hunting for clues on land and offshore. Where there's stolen diamonds, though, there's danger -- and Nancy and her friends are soon caught in the thick of it. Will Nancy be able to crack this case before her ship is sunk?


    A TASTE OF DANGER (#174)
    Nancy's thrilled that she, Bess, George, and Hannah will be attending the grand opening of the newly renovated Gourmet Getaway. Not only will they be able to eat four-star meals prepared by master chefs, they'll get to take cooking classes with them, too. But before the table's even set, problems start plaguing the resort, both in and out of the kitchen. Nancy can't believe it's just bad luck, but who's causing all the problems?

    Nancy puts her cooking on the back burner so she can devote her attention to solving the mystery. Can she manage to find out who's behind the trouble before more sabotage is served?


    WEREWOLF IN A WINTER WONDERLAND (#175)
    Things are hairy in River Heights this holiday season. Two wolves have disappeared from WildWolf, the federal wolf preserve just outside of town. Local farmers think the missing wolves are killing their sheep, but there are also rumors of werewolf sightings nearby. At the same time, the annual River Heights Winter Carnival is set to begin. When the first two days of the outdoor festival are full of tragic disasters, Nancy can't help but wonder -- is there a link between the carnival's trouble and the missing wolves?

    After the carnival's beautiful ice palace is destroyed, Nancy's sure there's a wolf at River Heights's door. But is the leader of this pack of crimes human, or beast?

    Nancy and her friends, George and Bess, are returning from a country carnival when they witness the explosion and burning of a beautiful country mansion. Fearing its occupants may be trapped in the blazing building, they rush to the rescue -- and unexpectedly find themselves confronted with a mystery that seems to be insoluble. The first clue is an anonymous diary, its entries in a handwriting difficult to decipher. Even more puzzling are the technical drawings and chemical formulas contained in its pages.

    Who dropped the diary near the burning house? Was it the gaunt stranger Nancy glimpsed runing away from the flaming structure? What was he doing there? And does he know the whereabouts of Felix Raybolt, an unscrupulous dealer in patents, who has not been seen since his home burned? Or did Raybolt die in the fire?


    THE MESSAGE IN THE HOLLOW OAK (#12)
    A group of professional detectives challenge Nancy to tackle a mystery that they have failed to solve: find an invaluable message hidden by a missionary centuries ago in a hollow oak tree in Illinois.

    NANCY DREW: ALL GIRL DETECTIVE




    WITHOUT A TRACE (#1)
    Hi, I'm Nancy Drew, and I've got a case to crack. Actually make that two cases. First a gorgeous Fabergé egg has been stolen. Who would have the heart to snatch such a precious family heirloom from someone new to town? Some housewarming that is!

    And if this isn't enough to keep me busy, someone's running through gardens and stomping on all the zucchinis. Needless to say, it's a big mess -- in more ways than one. Especially for Mr. Safer, who is suspected of squishing the squash. I'm pretty sure Mr. Safer's innocent. But who's the real vegetable vandal?


    RACE AGAINST TIME (#2)
    If I'm in the game, I play to win. So as captain of my team in the River Heights Biking for Bucks charity road race, my goals are to bring my team over the finish line first -- and to catch a thief along the way!

    See, all of the money we raised before the race has been stolen -- and I know I can find it. With two days, practically no clues, and a bike race to win, I've got my work cut out for me. But with Bess, George, and Ned on my team, what could stand between us and the gold?


    FALSE NOTES (#3)
    I'm always up for a good mystery, but when the big question is what I should get Dad for his birthday, I don't have a clue! And then another mystery comes my way -- one that involves Heather Simmons, a leading candidate in the upcoming election for mayor of River Heights. My friends and I are pretty sure that her daughter Leslie, musician extraordinaire, has been kidnapped. But the thing is, nobody is saying a word about it!

    It's hard to crack a case like this when no one will even admit that one exists. But I won't let a little thing like that stop me when I smell trouble ...


    HIGH RISK (#4)
    It looks like Evaline Waters, a River Heights resident, is knee-deep in trouble. A huge corporation is suing her for her land; they want to tear down her house and put up a warehouse. And documentation of the zoning law that would protect Evaline's right to keep her land is missing. Figures!

    I've got to find that document, but it's hard to focus on the land when I'm cruising at ten thousand feet. See, Ned and I are taking flying lessons, him with Colonel Lang, a friend of his family, and me with Frank Beltrano, an instructor at our local airport. It's a good thing I'm good at juggling more than two balls at once. Too bad I'm not the only one.


    LIGHTS, CAMERA ... (#5)
    I'm a detective, not an actor, so who would think I'd be involved in a crime both offscreen and on? A producer has come to River Heights to film a reenactment of the heist that gave our town it's name, and he thinks I'm perfect for the part of Esther, the sister of the thieving Rackham boys. So I figure, why not give it a try?

    But once the cameras start rolling, the trouble begins. Food poisoning. Broken generators. And worse! If I don't sniff out some suspects soon, this might be my final act.


    ACTION! (#6)
    So I agreed to play the part of Esther Rackham in a film about the heist that gave River Heights its name, and there was all this trouble on the set, and I figured out who was behind it. Case closed, right? Wrong!

    Once the camera starts rolling, a huge fire breaks out on the set, setting back production again. We're running out of time and funds. At least the fire turns up a key clue about who started it, but I'll have to continue juggling acting and sleuthing. Because it might be up to me to save this film from going up in flames ...


    THE STOLEN RELIC (#7)
    My friends and I knew before we got to Arches National Park that it's full of red cliffs arches, and rock formations -- plenty of places for hiking, biking, and getting lost. It's a good thing there are park rangers and guides to help tourist like us find our way. Or at east that's what we thought, until of the guilds left for a second to investigate some noise, and never came back.

    It seems unlikely that a respected tour guide who knows the area like the back of her hand could just get lose. Something's fishy. And you can bet I'm going to get to the bottom of this before I find my way home.


    THE SCARLET MACAW SCANDAL (#8)
    Bess, George, and I volunteered to go to Costa Rica for some R&R: rest and research. See, Corcovado Ecologica, a popular resort and preserve, isn't only a beautiful getaway; it's also a great place to study three species of monkeys. Or so we thought.

    When we arrived on the scene, we found the place in a shambles, and the monkeys were few and far between. And if the problem gets worse, the resort's going to be in trouble. Clearly my friends and I won't have much time for "monkeying around" on this trip -- we've got a case to crack!


    THE SECRET OF THE SPA (#9)
    When I scored tickets to the grand opening of a new spa in town, I knew I had to take Bess. George came along, too, but she's been acting so weird. I knew this wouldn't be her idea of a total blast, but she's just been no fun at all. It's unlike her to be such a grouch!

    But then, this new spa isn't turning out to be much fun, either. Deirdre's here, for starters. And someone's tampering with the food, and trying to take the "luxury" out of this otherwise luxurious place. Something stinks in this spa, and if I can't sniff it out, my name's not Nancy ...


    UNCIVIL ACTS (#10)
    A Civil War reenactment should be fun, right? Not in our town! It feels like war fever's taken over. The tension started to build when we all chose sides. Confederate and Union sympathizers never did mix. And if that wasn't enough to heat things up, someone started to secretly dig large holes in the battlefield. Pretty odd -- and very suspicious. Is someone waging a little war of their own, and trying to cheat? And if so, the bigger question is why?


    RIVERBOAT RUSE (#11)
    How about a seat at a mystery dinner on a riverboat? Yes, please! I jumped at the invitation to go along with Bess, George, and George's mom, who was hired to cater the dinner. It's all fun until there's an actual theft, and there's nothing like a good crime to stop a party. Since I've got the magnifying glass, it's up to me to catch "sticky fingers" before this dinner's sunk.


    STOP THE CLOCK (#12)
    Just as I'm gearing up to help plan the Mahoney Library's seventy-fifth anniversary celebration, the beautiful old clock, the very centerpiece of the library, is stolen. There's nothing like a good theft to stop a party!

    Naturally, I throw down the streamers and get to work. Turns out lots of people wanted that clock -- and what's inside. If I don't hustle, this might become two crimes instead of one ...

    AGAINST THE RULES (#119)
    Nancy, Bess, and George have been invited to the Stafford Military Academy's gala centennial celebration, a weekend of dining and dancing with good-looking guys in uniform. But the festivities take an ugly and tragic turn when one good soldier -- Sergeant Stephanie Grindle -- becomes a casualty ... of murder!

    Don't forget Nancy Drew On Campus!
    I'm not sure if this is what you've been making a list of, but I just read "Not a Girl Detective" by Susan Kandel. It's not completely about Nancy Drew, but the whole plot is kind of based around a love of Nancy Drew. I'm not good with summaries. Google it?
    And it does has information about Nancy Drew, but I'm not sure what's true, if any of it is. xD
    Hope I helped a little...
