“I don’t know of a better novel about the costs and rewards of being a truth teller, nor of any book that made more readers of my generation want to become fiction writers. I love the story of Harriet so much I feel as if I lived it.” —Jonathan Franzen, author of Freedom and The Corrections

You don’t often find a children's story with the emotional resonance of Harriet the Spy.
I still love it! What a great character, all the characters are wonderful. And it's a good morality tale as well. I love the 70's vibe it really brings me right back to my childhood.
I'm so glad I re-read Harriet the Spy!
