Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh is a 300-page softcover, A Yearling Book, first published in 1964, this copy published in May 2001. Some creases and shelf wear to the cover.
Harriet M. Welsch is a spy. She's staked out a spy route, and she writes down everything about everyone she sees--including her classmates and her best friends--in her notebook.
"I bet the lady with the cross-eye looks in the mirror and feels just terrible."
"Pinky Whitehead will never change. Does his mother hate him? If I had him I'd hate him."
Then Harriet loses track of her notebook, and it ends up in the wrong hands. Before Harriet 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?ISBN: 0-440-41679-5
