Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry potter and the prisoner of Azkaban is an excellent book. Out of ten stars I would rate this one an eight because it was to short. Once you get into it and finish it. It seems so short, because it is so interesting. Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban starts out with a bang.

They then tell Harry to be careful with his actions. Later on in the story Harry and his friends get lead outside to a secret shack because of a screaming that they hear. In the shack they confront Sirius the man accused of killing Harry’s mom and dad and they try to capture him. Sirius tries to explain to Harry and the gang the truth but does not get through to them because of Harry’s anger and rage. With a little help from surprise visitors Harry realizes the truth and his judgment changes toward Sirius. Sirius tells him he was tricked and that he was partly responsible for their death. But he would do anything to change the past. He was then appointed Harry’s stepfather. After another scuffle Sirius is caught and taken up to Hogwarts dungeon where he was to be executed by a dementors kiss (in which the soul is sucked out through the mouth). Dumbledore knows the truth and helps Harry save Sirius. Sirius leaves for a hiding place and their he resides until his death in the 5th book. The conflict in this story was trying to find Sirius and find the truth. It is solved when Harry finds him and discovers the truth.
The story takes place in Hogwarts School in present time, England.
