Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling - review
Poor Harry Potter is stuck spending another summer with his odious relatives, the Dursleys, who really should've had Child Protective Services called on them years ago. After putting up with lots of rotten treatment, Harry finally loses his temper and blows up his Aunt Marge like a balloon, not like a bomb. So Harry hightails it out of Number 4 Privet Drive and gets picked up by the Knight Bus, which takes him to Diagon Alley and thus back to the wizarding world. Click the map infographic to download. Harry isn't punished for his "crime" he's not allowed to practice magic outside of school and soon finds out why: turns out, a dangerous prisoner, Sirius Black, has escaped from Azkaban and is hunting down Harry. Given how many times he's faced off with homicidal maniacs, Harry isn't all that concerned about this development. The real problem is that he doesn't have permission to visit Hogsmeade, the wizarding village near Hogwarts, this school year.

The Harry Potter series are described as 'children books', however, in my opinion, whether you're twelve or twenty two, I highly recommend them!!

Yet, secret and mysterious things are happening in the wizarding world, and Harry is not safe from the dark and dangerous people at large. Who is the infamous Sirius Black, who escaped from the notorious wizard prison: Azkaban? And what could the fugitive Black possibly want with Harry? Harry, Ron and Hermione, spend another magical year at Hogwarts, where Harry learns far more about his past then he could have expected.
