Sincerely, Harriet

By Sarah Winifred Searle
Illustrated by Sarah Winifred Searle

A colourful, big-hearted middle-grade graphic novel by a rising talent. Sincerely, Harriet is a love letter to the books that change our lives, with a misfit protagonist readers will instantly adore.

Harriet Flores struggles with boredom, an unrequited crush, and a multiple sclerosis diagnosis through a long, hot, 1990s summer in Chicago. She uses her imagination to cope, which sometimes gets her into trouble, as she makes up fantastical fibs and wonders if there are ghosts upstairs. One neighbour, Pearl, encourages Harriet to read and write, leading Harriet to have a breakthrough and discover the power of storytelling.

  • Addresses chronic illness with creativity and optimism
  • Depicts a moving intergenerational friendship
  • A compelling mix of unique details and universal themes
