Harriet, a ten year old with a self-assigned spy route, keeps detailed notes about everyone and everything she sees. Unfortunately, her notebook falls into the wrong hands, nearly destroying all of her friendships.

This was one of my very favorite books as a child. Harriet is the type of kid to whom any child who is bright and a bit of a social outsider will relate. Now, decades later, my daughter is as enamored of this book as I was. Harriet helped me feel less alone as a kid; it was reassuring to know that I wasn't the only one who looked at the world differently than those around me. As an adult, I appreciate that this book offers a great tale of friendship and trust, without being preachy.
