They all have their own personalities and motivations for becoming Black Cats and valedictorian. There’s also a social caste in Waverly, and Nancy learns this from text messages and other sources.
While attending the academy, Nancy must abide by the school’s rules in order to avoid demerit points. She can’t be out late, and she can’t get in another girl’s room after lights out. Nevertheless, she’s determined to solve this mystery before her investigation turns deadly. However, she finds herself in an awkward position: she’s the Valedictorian and has an Ivy League scholarship. Her only chance to save her school is to follow the rules.
The twenty-first game in the Nancy Drew series is called Warnings at Waveryly Academy. It is based on Nancy Drew Mystery Stories #158, The Curse of the Black Cat.

Meanwhile, Nancy has to deal with her roommates. Her roommate Corine is a bit awkward, but she is eager to fit in. Despite her awkwardness, she considers herself to be the only real valedictorian candidate. Her previous roommate Danielle, who had been locked in a closet overnight, was traumatized by the incident and left the school. Nancy’s cello playing roommate Mel, on the other hand, is more respected than Corine. She’s not afraid to wear goth fashion.
