Harriet is probably the most accomplished 11-year-old spy. She dreams of being a writer and her nanny told her to start by writing down everything she sees. It's all in good fun, that is until her friends find her private writings. Now they don't like Harriet much. Can Harriet win back her friends or is she doomed to be considered an outsider, a rejected writer and forgotten spy?
