Harry Potter Series

The Teen Review: "Harry Potter Series" by J.K. Rowling

Cover: 'Harry Potter Series'


A boy was raised by his aunt and uncle. They were really mean to him because they did not want Harry (the boy) to be a wizard. Harry did not know he was a wizard until someone, Hagrid, came and got him. He was the gamekeeper at Hogwarts. Harry arrives at Hogwarts. He thinks that he could not be wizard but there were other kids who parents had no magic. Harry made two friends at school. There names were Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger. Ron came from a family with all wizards. Hermione's parents did not know magic and they were dentists.

When Harry arrives at Hogwarts, he was quite famous because he was the only one who had survived from a killing curse. Harry also made an enemy, Draco Malfoy. He was from Slytherin and Harry and his friends were from Gryffindor. Harry soon was on the Quidditch team. He was a seeker. His job was to catch the snitch. That would earn them 150 points. It would also end the game. At school, someone was trying to kill Harry all the time. Ron and Hermione would help Harry to find out who it was. Hermione was really smart so when they did not know what the problem was, she would go look it up in the library. Ron was Harry's sidekick. Together, they saved peoples lives.
