Harry Potter thought he was an ordinary boy. His life changed when he got a letter from Hogwarts. His uncle and aunt would not let him read the letter, however they couldn't keep what he didn't know from him any longer. Hagrid eventually showed up to tell Harry the news himself. He was a wizard. At first, Harry thought this was some mistake, he couldn't have been a wizard. As the story goes on, Harry learns more about the other side of this life that had been kept from him the whole time. This book was really good, and I enjoyed reading it. This made me interested in reading the books after this in the Harry Potter series. I recommend this book to people who enjoy the Percy Jackson series, or the Hunger Games series. I rate this 5/5.
