Book Summary
There is a door at the end of a silent hallway. And he's haunting the dreams of Harry Potter. Why else would I be waking up in the middle of the night, screaming in terror?

Harry has a lot on his mind for this, his fifth year at Hogwarts: a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a big surprise on the Gryffindor Quidditch team; and the looming terror of ordinary level magic tests. But all of these things pale alongside the growing He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named threat, a threat that neither the wizarding government nor the Hogwarts authorities can stop.

As the darkness tightens, Harry must discover the true depth and strength of his friends, the importance of unlimited loyalty, and the shocking price of excruciating sacrifice.

Your fate depends on all of them.

Book Review
The fifth book in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series follows the darkest year yet for our young wizard, who finds himself knocked down a peg or three after last year's events. Somehow, over the summer, gossip (usually traced back to the wizarding world newspaper, The Daily Prophet) has turned Harry's tragic and heroic encounter with Voldemort at the Triwizard Tournament into an excuse to ridicule and discount the teen. Even Professor Dumbledore, the headmaster of the school, has come under scrutiny by the Ministry of Magic, which refuses to officially acknowledge the terrifying truth that Voldemort is back. Enter a particularly disgusting new character: Dolores Umbridge, the deputy assistant secretary to the Minister for Magic, who takes over the vacant position as Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and who soon becomes a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. the High Inquisitor at Hogwarts, too. Life is not getting easier for Harry Potter. With an overwhelming load of courses as the fifth years prepare for their Ordinary Magic Levels (OWL) exams, devastating changes in the Gryffindor Quidditch team lineup, vivid dreams about long hallways and closed doors, and mounting pain in his lightning bolt scar, Harry's endurance is well proven.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, more than any of the previous four novels in the series, is a coming of age story. Harry faces the thorny transition into adulthood when adult heroes are revealed to be fallible, and affairs that seemed black and white suddenly come out in shades of gray. The innocent is gone with his eyes open, the genius child of the philosopher's stone. Here we have a teenager who is sometimes sullen, often confused (especially about girls), and always questioning himself. Facing death again, as well as a surprising prophecy, Harry ends his year at Hogwarts exhausted and thoughtful. Readers, on the other hand, will be energized as they once again enter the long waiting period for the next title in the wonderful and magical series.
