Ages: All ages

Harry Potter is a special boy with a scar that goes along with a story that every witch and wizard knows. Everyone may know his story and how his parents died but what they don’t know is that Harry has been having a hunting dream about a door at the end of a corridor. What might be even more terrifying than Harry’s dream is the socking pain in his scar that follows causing him to wake up in the middle of the night yelling in pain. As Harry enters his 5th year at Hogwarts school for witchcraft and wizardry he pushes his dream and his pain to the back of his mind thinking it is the least of his problems. Harry along with his pals Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger are excited to began this school year knowing that Ron and Hermione are now perfects which is a special honor given to very few students and as Harry a star Quidditch is now the Quidditch captain.

After a few short months of the new school year Harry, Ron, and Hermione find themselves with a problem and the problem’s name is Professor Umbridge. Professor Umbridge is from the Ministry of Magic which is a place that controls unprofessional, dark magic, or underage use of magic. And because of problems in the past at Hogwarts and long periods of time with out headmaster Dumbledore the Ministry of Magic puts Professor Umbridge as the new headmaster. As Professor Umbridge comes to Hogwarts the fun leaves. Umbridge writes a long list of rules in which students must follow and if they don’t they must serve a detention by writing sentences with a special pen. This pen has a special twist it uses students blood to write with leaving scars on the back of their hand of what they are writing. Along with Umbridge, Harry, Ron, and Hermione also have to deal with passing their O.W.L.S which stands for Ordinary Wizarding Levels. They must past their O.W.L.S to determine they classes that they will take next year.

As Harry deals with Umbrige and his O.W.L.S his dream becomes more detailed and the pain in his scar grows deeper. He starts to wonder if it had anything to do with the Dark Lord Voldemort, he begins to question it more but later pushes it to the back of his mind. Harry and his friends plan to get rid of Umbridge because of her ridiculous rules she gets rid of Qudditch team taking absolutely all of Harry’s fun out of his 5th year. As friends say that they will help get rid of Umbridge Harry takes time to focus more on his studies and the cause of his dream. He then realizes that it is time to take this problem the Dumbledore, Dumbledore says that it is simply nothing Harry should worry about and to focus on his studies but Harry cant help but to think other wise. Harry can’t help but to take things into his own hands and figure things out like how get rid of Umbridge and pass his O.W.L.S and how to fight his dream and his pain. To find out how Harry deals with everything you will just have to read “Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix” By J.K. Rowling.
