Recommended for: spies, misfits, and other kindred spirits
Read in August, 1999

This book made me shout so with laughter that my mother came running to see if I was alright. I read it the summer after high school when I was stuck home with a broken leg, and I must admit I don't remember the plot all that clearly. But it has to do with Sport, one of the two best friends of Harriet the Spy, the son of a starving writer who tries to balance his dad's impracticality by learning to keep the books and cook the vegetables (all before turning 10, I believe). Harriet is quite a sharp-tongued bitch in her own book but she really outdoes herself in this one. I can't remember what it was she said that so amused me, but I do know it's worth finding out for yourself.
