“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Like millions of kids around the world the Harry Potter book series are the books that really got me into reading.
I started late in the series since the fire HP book I read was the fourth one. At the time, my best friend Kaio had to force me to read the book and once I started I couldn’t put it down. I read number 3, 2 and 1 after that and ended up marking my calendar for the fifth book’s release date.
Throughout the series I always thought that there was more to professor Snape than what meets the eyes and I was crushed by book 6 and enjoyed book 7 because I knew I was right to keep having faith in him and the revelation about Professor Dumbledore was a nice touch.
These books may have thought me that loss is an important part of life even in an imaginary life.
