Synopsis: Harriet M. Welch is the
headstrong only child of well to do
socialite parents. She is also has a hobby
of being a spy who observes her friends,
neighbors, and classmates. She likes to
write her observations down in her
notebook. Harriet spends much of her time
with her loving nurse Ole Golly who artfully
teaches her about life. One fateful night
Ole Golly announces she plans to marry and
move to Canada. Soon after that Harriet's
notebook is found and read by all her
friends and classmates. Harriet's blunt and
mean observations in her notebook causes
everyone at school to dislike her. Harriet is
distressed and spirals out of control. Ole
Golly returns for a visit and teaches
Harriet a helpful tip: Sometimes you have
to lie when you are a spy, but is important
to always be truthful to yourself.
