Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Review

Title: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Author: J.K. Rowling

Book: (Harry Potter, #3)

Pages: 435

Rating: 5/5

So I shouldn't really complain since I have the book but I will since I had to wait a whole day to get started reading it. This book's binding was falling apart (not as badly as the fourth book was) so my father had to fix it up. Luckily he did a good job but I was dying to read the book by the time I was allowed to open it!
So the summer goes pretty well considering how his summers usually go...that is until his Aunt (no blood relation) shows up with her evil bulldog Ripper. When she begins to criticize Harry's parents Harry looses control and uses magic on her. He takes all his stuff and runs away but he is soon found by the Ministry of Magic and... forgiven! He never saw that coming! So he stays hidden until school starts and he can go back with his friends Ron and Hermione. What he didn't know (until he overheard it) was that a crazy wizard was out to kill Harry.
He gets to school and Hermione starts acting funny along with her new cat and Ron's rat. Something is going on but all Harry wants is to go to the town with the rest of the third years. He manages! :D
Anyway Sirius Black is apparently Harry's godfather and Professor Lupin is a friend of Harry's father. Ron's rat is a traitor and Professor Snape wants their blood. (doesn't he always want somebody dead??) When Sirius is captured and sentenced to have his soul sucked out of him it is up to Harry and Hermione to save him. Why? Because he isn't the bad guy in this story. How? Hermione has a secret!
Will they be able to pull off the closest stunt in history? Will they save two lives? Or will Snape have them both expelled from school for good and let Sirius die?
Loved Sirius Black! XD I know I'm pathetic but I really do! Even when I didn't know he was a bad guy I still rooted for him though I didn't understand what was going on with him. This book was totally worth the wait!
