J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series was a book-selling phenomenon. The story of a boy wizard, orphaned by the deeds of a dark wizard, and his friends as they find themselves pitted repeatedly against evil.
The Summary of the Book
Harry Potter is not an ordinary child. Orphaned at childhood, he has heard from his aunt and uncle that his good-for-nothing parents died in a car crash. Bullied by his cousin Dudley, Harry believes that his life can never improve. The arrival of a half-giant at his doorstep on his eleventh birthday foreshadows his true identity. He learns that he is a wizard, and that he is invited to the greatest institute of magical learning ever: The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Once in, he discovers that to the Wizarding world, his name is legend for defeating He Who Must Not Be Named. The series follows Harry Potter and his friends through seven years at the school, where he learns the values of friendship, courage, truth and, above all, love.
