Harriet the Spy/Long Secret


Harriet M. Welsch is an 11-year-old girl who spends her days going to school, playing with friends, and spying on strangers. Determined to be a spy/writer when she grows up, Harriet records her brutally honest thoughts and observations in a series of notebooks. A groundbreaking work, HARRIET THE SPY features a female main character who, although bossy, cynical, and rude, is also likeable and sympathetic. As a result, Harriet is one of the most fully realized, authentic characters to appear in print--certainly one of the first such characters to appear in a book written for children. Published in 1964, HARRIET THE SPY heralded the introduction of realism into the heretofore sweet and innocent world of children's literature and ultimately led the way for such other books as S.E. Hinton's THE OUTSIDERS and Judy Blume's ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME, MARGARET. Hide synopsis
