"Harry tried to speak clearly but all that came out was,
“What?” asked Cho.
“The ball, do you want to go with me?”"
As usual J.K. Rowling creates another great year of witchcraft and wizardry in book four of her series. Shortly after Harry arrives at Hogwarts, Dumbledore announces that they will be hosting the legendary Tri-wizard Tournament. Competitors from three schools arrive to compete in the dangerous tasks that the tournament holds. The goblet of fire will choose three students to compete, one from each school. But when Harry is chosen, without putting his name in the goblet, he wonders if there are dark forces at hand. He suspects that the tournament may be a cover-up for a murder, his murder.
To survive the tournament Harry must defeat dragons, demons and death eaters. On top of training for the tournament’s tasks, Harry has school work to focus on and a girl from the Ravenclaw house who he can’t keep his eyes off, Cho Chang.
When you’re reading the Harry Potter books you can’t put them down. They’re easy to understand, and are packed full of action and mysterious secrets. You never expect who is behind the wrongdoing. Open the books and you’ll follow Harry down candlelit corridors in the dead of night on a mission to unravel the secrets of Hogwarts.
Will Harry survive the tournament? Who could have put his name in the goblet? And is He-Who-Should-Not-Be-Named somehow getting stronger? Find out in the Goblet of Fire!
