Once upon a time, there was a 10th grader named Khanh who didn t get along with people very well She wasn t an outcast in school, and all the bullying and teasing stopped with the commencement of high school, but she had always been a bookworm and has generally preferred the company of her own thoughts. Lunchtime had always been dedicated not to eating, but to sitting in the library, browsing through books Not to worry, she got her nutrition in 5th period in the form of a giant 6 inch MM studded cookie and a package of Sour Patch Kids and or a package of Reese s Pieces Ah, the effortless metabolism of youth One day, there were shiny new books on her school library s New Releases shelf Harry Potter, books 1 through 3 She had heard of the books before, of course, since they were a constant presence on the NYT b I will never ever rate this lower than 5 stars BEAUTIFUL.

I m going to keep this brief since there isn t much to say that hasn t already been said clears throat I think the reason I waited so long to read this series is because I just couldn t imagine myself enjoying reading about an eleven year old boy and his adventures at a school of wizardry I thought it would be too juvenile for my taste I was wrong, of course.
