Plot Summary:
In this installment of the Harry Potter story, Harry is faced with bigger problems then is ever before. After the death of Cedric Diggory, and the return of Voldemort, Harry is in greater danger then before, especially now, when the Dementors have escaped Azkaban  and he has been seeing and hearing Voldemort. In order to hide from the Dark Lord, Harry has moved into his Sirius' mansion to be protected by the Order before going back to Hogwarts.

As the school year begins, the Ministry of Magic has decided to replace Dumbledore with a horrible woman named Dolores Umbridge, who not only makes the students lives miserable, but Harry Potter has become her main target. With the threat of Voldemort, and the lack of a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Harry has turned the Room of Requirement into a practice room for the DA (Dumbledore's Army). Here, Harry is teaching everyone defense spells, especially the Patronus Spell.

Just when things cannot get any worse, Harry goes on another mission to find out if he truly is the "Chosen One" who is destined to defeat Voldemort. This installment, not only will 'tweens relate to the angst and the pressure that Harry is facing, but will feel more sympathy for this kid who not only has the world's worst luck, but loses yet another father figure in the battle against Voldemort. This book is packed full of twists and turns that will keep reader's reading from dusk till dawn!
