Ever since 11 year old Harry Potter was a baby, strange things had been happening to him. Like when he was dragged to the zoo by his cousin, Dudley, he “magically” made the glass disappear completely from a snake exhibit which now housed a fuming Dudley. As you may imagine, his Uncle Vernon, who he has lived with his entire life, was outraged. Not that that life wasn’t already miserable for harry, but now it was even worse. Other than cooking and cleaning, Harry was locked in a closet which was his bedroom. All poor Harry could do all day was think to himself how miserable his life was. But this was all about to change. 

Harry’s day started out normally, with him cooking and cleaning. But when the mail came in that day, there was a single letter addressed to him. He tried to hide it from the Dursleys (because he had never gotten a letter before and it seemed very suspicious), but was too late as Dudley saw it first. This letter was taken away from him and burned. But over the next week Harry got thousands of letters all with the same postage stamp. What was Hogwarts? Who wanted to contact him so bad? Finally he got a letter hand delivered to him by a giant man named Hagrid. The letter was a letter of acceptance to Hogwarts (which Harry finds out is a school). Hagrid said, “You’re a wizard Harry.” Harry had never been so excited in his life .Finally a chance to get away from the Dursleys and live for a little while. However, what Harry doesn’t realize is a big mystery awaits at Hogwarts. One of the teachers is trying to steal something very important. Who is the rouge teacher? What are they trying to steal? Well, that’s for you, and Harry, to find out.

 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is one of the best books I’ve ever read. Between magic, friends, comedy, and enemies, you will be flipping through pages faster than ever. J.K. Rowling does a fantastic job blending fantasy with real life morals and thoughts. This story tells you why not to make too many enemies, break rules, and mess with the balance of nature. It also tells you to follow your heart, no matter what others tell you. I would recommend this book to someone who likes suspense, drama, mystery, and magic.
