As a child, my favorite book was probably Harriet the Spy. That was such a great book because it was not about how cute she was. In fact, she wasn’t especially adorable or anything. She was such just an adventurous city kid and she had weird confidence even though she wasn’t that popular. She was a nosy little chubby kid who was special, and it was always one of my favorite books growing up.      source

I said “had to” like it was a bad thing. Harriet the spy is a great book. Iconic. I read it so many times.      source
