My review of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2)
by J.K. Rowling.
When Harry is with the Dursley’s you can’t help but feel sorry for him because of being treated so unfairly by his Muggle Family.
Dobby the house-elf tries to persuade Harry not to go back to Hogwarts because he’s terrified of the evil plans against Harry. The elf’s intentions are good, but Harry ends up in a load of grief not just from the Dursley’s but from Hogwarts too. The school doesn’t start off on the right foot for Harry and Ron when they miss the train. Dobby had sealed the barrier leading to platform 9 3/4, so they decide to take Mr. Weasley’s flying car and crash into a Whomping Willow. They were in major trouble.
Ginny Weasley was hoodwinked in Voldemorts dark powers because Mr. Malfoy put an object of dark magic inside her basket of schoolbooks. It was a diary that belonged to Tom Riddle. (A Horcrux!) She was unaware that he was controlling her and it almost kills her and other students at Hogwarts including Harry, but Harry and Ron were triumphant as they found the clues leading them to save her.
