Rated 3 out of 5 by from Harriet's the Best I love Harriet's character so much, I found her to be so incredibly relatable and you feel for her so much throughout the book like it honestly hurts to see the way that people at school treated her. Her friends were also interesting characters that added a lot of interest to the story and I'm glad that they were around for her. My only problem was Harriet's parents, they seemed a little too ridiculous for grown ups but in the end, I guess they proved to be the proper parents that Harriet deserves.
