Awesome / Harriet the Spy

  • The entirety of the last chapter, when Harriet gets to be the editor of the class paper. She prints some of her observations, thus achieving her dream of having people read what she writes — including some vicious facts about her classmates' parents.note  However, she also prints retractions for the unpleasant truths and observations that her classmates read about themselves in the notebook, taking Ole Golly's advice and referring to her notes as "lies" (even though they were not). She gets her friends and her writing back all at the same time.
