Reviews

A New York Public Library's 100 Great Children's Books 100 Years selection

"This is the book that made me want to be a writer. [Harriet] was the first fictional female character I ever came across who privileged her own truth above the expectations put on her as a little girl." --Anna Holmes for Bookish.com

"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

"Harriet the Spy bursts with life."--School Library Journal

"The characterizations are marvelously shrewd."--The Bulletin
