Do you like to read books where things that are not possible in real life but are possible in certian type of books? Well Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is one of those types of books. It's Harry's second year at Hogwart's School of Magic. This year it is not like the first year at Hogwarts and the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. At Hogwarts there is a chamber that has been open 50 years ago, now it is opened again. I won't tell you who opened it but it is a person younger than Harry. Lord Voltemort is also involoved in this book also. This book is a mystery book.

This second book to me is a sad book and a happy book. The way it is sad is because the kids that are helping out get petrified. The way it is happy is at the end everybody is cured and is back to normal. I think this book is really cool because there is alot of action. This book reminds me of the time I went on my first fieldtrip to a play.

I want to recommend this book to kids that like mystery and sad type of books. Kids in fourth and fifth grades might like reading this book. The boys might like this book more than girls because it has more to do with Harry and Ron than with Hermione.

My favorite part in this book is when Harry wins the Qudditch match against Slytherin. So if you liked my summary and want to find out more you should read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. There are other books by J.K. Rowling like the other three books with Harry Potter in them that you might like too.
