The Dursleys are nothing but mean to Harry Potter and all he wanted to do was go back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As he was about to leave he meets a house-elf who warns him, if he goes back to Hogwarts terrible things will happen. And they sure. In Harry’s second year of Hogwarts, he gets a new teacher who worries about his hair more than the class, a ghost haunting the girls bathroom, and Ron’s sister, Ginny, who is obsessed with him. But, those are just minor things, the real trouble began when someone or something is turning Hogwarts students to stone. Who could it be, Harrys formidable enemy, Draco Malfoy, or Hagrid whose mysterious past is finally revealed. Or could it be Hogwarts most suspected- Harry Potter himself! I think this book is very action-packed and exciting at every page, like you never want to put down this book down until you finished it. This book is very interesting and has a lot of funny,serious , and sad moments. I kept reading it because I enjoyed the first book very much and I wanted to find out about Hagrid’s past and who is turning the Hogwarts students to stone. I would give this book to anybody who like the first book in this series and anyone who like magic, action, and mystery novels.
