I read Harriet the Spy solely so that I could say I had, after a friend retorted
Well, have you ever read Harriet the Spy? (To what she retorted, I no longer remember.) That said, I quite enjoyed it. I'm both upset and amused by the protagonist's amorality. She almost belongs in Camus' L'Etranger.
Is it appropriate for children? Hell if I know. It's a classic, I guess, so go ahead. I liked it plenty. (Although not enough to read the sequel.)
