For those of us who love Harry Potter (and there are a LOT of us), the magic never truly ends. We re-read the books. We watch the movies for maybe the hundredth time (and I might not be exaggerating). We find camaraderie and instant connections with fellow Potterheads who also believe in love, magic, and forever friendship. And sometimes, we show our love by writing our own books about it. Jill Kolongowski’s book is part memoir, part love letter to the world’s most beloved book series. She shows how Harry Potter , more than simply entertaining and delighting, also teaches, strengthens, and challenges us to be better.
