Review quote

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""
