Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

My Rating: 5 stars

**If you haven’t read previous books, don’t read!**


Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts has finally arrived, and there are many things he isn’t looking forward to. Well, first of all, there was an incident over the summer involving some dementors in his Muggle neighborhood. But, in this year at Hogwarts, the fifth years have to take the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. And they aren’t so easy, considering there is a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, (again), who works for the Ministry and is about as sweet as poison.

Also, there is the growing danger of the He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. As Harry and his friends prepare for what they know is going to come, and trying to prove the Ministry wrong, he finds loyalty and strength in his friends. In the end, Harry faces an unbearable sacrifice, and the foreboding feeling that everything is only going to get worse.
