Description


The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone - or something - starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself!

Brave Like That is a glorious and heartfelt book that will keep young readers engaged and turning pages to find out about sixth grader Cyrus Olson’s attempt at saving (& owning) a stray dog, his ability to mask his reading comprehension problem, his fake interest in playing football like his college-football-star Dad and his growing awareness of how kindness and being yourself makes such a difference in one’s outlook. This adventure-packed story, located in the Minnesota town of Northfield, packs a punch and will resonate with readers looking for a contemporary story about values and coming to terms with one’s given gifts. I loved the references to both picture book and middle grade contemporary books, as well as the gentleness & special relationship Cyrus has with his non-verbal grandmother. Truly outstanding! - reviewed by Maureen
