Harry Potter is back at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for his fifth year. But things are not going well for the young wizard. He’s been having nightmares about a dark creature that he calls “Voldemort.” And, worst of all, Harry is convinced that Voldemort is out to get him. As the school starts to prepare for battle against You-Know-Who, Harry struggles to keep up with his classes and also find time to practice Quidditch (a game played on broomsticks). All this pressure leads Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger to suspect that Harry might be overdoing it a bit. But things are about to get even more dangerous for Harry.
