Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter is now twelve years old and entering his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and he is once again joined by his best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. This year their new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher is Gilderoy Lockhart, a wizard who is rather head over heels in love with himself. If Narcissus had a twin, he would be Professor Lockhart.

Even the wizarding world has its collection of myths and lore, one of those being The Chamber of Secrets, a mysterious passage-way built by Salazar Slytherin when Hogwarts first opened. According to legend, the chamber is home to a fantastic, and dangerous, beast that can only be unleashed by the heir of Slytherin himself. Fifty years ago, when the Chamber was first opened, a student died and when strange things start happening to the current Hogwart’s students, it is believed that the heir has returned and reopened the chamber. How long until students start dying again? Meanwhile, Harry has started to hear voices and has found what appears to be an empty diary. But when he starts to write in it, he discovers someone is writing him back. Someone who has information about The Chamber of Secrets and who opened it the first time…

This sequel to “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” is as witty and wonderful as the first and shows early on that J.K. Rowling was a fantasy force to be reckoned with.
