Jamie said:
Harriet the spy is a book about a girl who writes down everything she sees. She goes around through the neighborhood, spying on anybody she can. Even her friends. She writes nice things about people sometimes, and sometimes she writes mean things. Once she dropped her notebook, her friends and classmates found out everything she thought of them. Everyone got mad at her, and Harriet had to use her creative thinking skills to get it back, and stop everyone from hating her. I think this book was pretty interesting, but at times it got a little dull, and slow. Still, I would recommend the book to everyone.

Harriet the spy is a boring book about a little girl that wonders a lot. She wonders in her notebook. She has about 15 of them but she fills them up very quickly. She has a daily spy routine and she also has a nanny that eventually leaves. She acts like a brat and she has parents that don't even know their child because she was always with her nanny. They take away her passion and she eventually becomes miserable. It didn't satisfy my reading taste buds but maybe if you read it you'll think differently.

I thought that Harriet the spy was a great book. Harriet writes alot of things in her notebook, but some kids find her note book and start reading it. Everyone at school starts to plan to do mean things to harriet and to make her life misserble.
