Harriet the Spy!
Harriet M. Welsch is a spy. In her notebook, she writes down everything she knows about everyone, even her classmates and her best friends. Then Harriet loses track of her notebook, and it ends up in the wrong hands. Before she can stop them, her friends have read the always truthful, sometimes awful things she’s written about each of them. Will Harriet find a way to put her life and her friendships back together?
How awesome was this book!? I can’t even tell you how many times I read this one as a kid. But Harriet was my book hero. So much so that I used to walk around keeping notes like her. I remember in the fifth grade having my spiral Bobby Brown notebook (don’t judge, he was on back then) and pink and purple pens, and writing down thoughts and notes about everything and everyone. My fifth grade class and teacher was especially good fodder for my notebook. I just knew I was getting good stuff so I could write a book someday. Harriet was quite the inspiration for me as a kid and now I really must get this so I can read it again.
Anybody else out there fans of Harriet the Spy?
