Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, by J.K. Rowling

If you have not read the books start with the first, Harry Potter
and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Harry has something new to worry about this year at Hogwarts.
In addition to his grades and his performance in Quidditch Harry
has to worry about a mass murderer who has broken out of the
top wizard prison. Sirius Black is considered one of the most evil
wizards alive and the wizarding community is in a panic. Harry
isn't too concerned, after all Hogwarts is the safest place on
earth. Black wouldn't be able to break in, would he?

The third Harry Potter book has always been my favorite and is
(IMHO) the only one deserving of five stars. While J.K. Rowling
has created what may possibly be the most amazing fantasy
world since Tolkin and has come up with captivating characters,
her writing often leaves a bit to be desired. No so in this book.
5 stars,
