Is Harry Potter a Good Book Series For Teens 12 and up?

Harper Hatfield, Reporter

The Harry Potter series is a wonderful book series written by J.K. Rowling.

 Harry Potter is a young boy who lives with his horrible aunt and uncle. Harry soon finds out his parents were killed by a powerful wizard and that he is one himself. He then goes to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and starts his great adventure, with his friends, towards finding out the truth about his family and his past. 

I think this book series is a great thriller. I think teens 12 and up would love this. It has magic, chaos, and a great plot. It has all the elements of a great series. Some teens may not like this book because of the type of things they like. But this series pulls you into a whole new world while you are reading it. 

As the books go on there is some negative language and a lot of violence. This is an aspect of which teens might not be drawn to it. Only a couple characters are like this though. Most teens who are very into the book grow to disliking to some of the characters, which is exactly what the author wants. She makes them so life-like that the annoying evil characters become so hated by the readers. 

Although there is some language and violence, this book does show signs of friendship and love between three kids that embark on a great adventure.
