Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, by J.K. Rowling--320 pages
What did Harry Potter know about magic? He was stuck with the decidedly un-magical Dursleys, who hated him. He slept in a closet and ate their leftovers. But an owl messenger changes all that, with an invitation to attend the Hogwarts School for Wizards and Witches, where it turns out Harry is already famous.. . .
Where it all began! I love rereading the Harry Potter series every few years!
