Why did I love this book?
I read my first Harry Potter book as an adult and was immediately hooked on the series. I've always loved fantasy books but was getting bored with medieval-style high fantasy books. Harry Potter manages to bridge the divide between children's books and adults. I was encouraged to write my own fantasy stories for adults but with teen and adult characters. Harry has Hogwarts. My witch, Kat, has a whole island devoted to educating the young in the craft.
