Read during Spring 2004

It was a few years back when I read Harriet the Spy so I can't recall if I found Harriet as annoying as I did this time. I can see how it was fairly daring for the 1960's but now seems like most of the 70's pre-teen novels. Enjoyable.

One of the loveliest summer vacation books I've ever read. The sequil to Harriet the Spy. I'm searching for books like it!

This Harriet the Spy book is all about Beth Ellen's coming into herself.
Sometimes hard to follow, but Beth Ellen's journey to self knowledge is interesting. ( )
  aimless22 | Jan 13, 2013 |
this book takes a turn at Beth Ellen's point of view it is still somewhat boring but it is interisting to read a book about a girl who was 12 during the time period and see how life is like for her. If you like a book that is full of action and adventure DON'T read Harriet the Spy OR the Long Secret ( )

told mostly from beth ellen's point of view, this book was kind of harsh on harriet. i feel like it was mean of fitzhugh to dump on the admittedly obnoxious heroine of her previous book. ( )
