“Harry Potter must not go back to Hogwarts.” Harry Potter survived his first year at Hogwarts (even his encounter with Voldemort) and he’s back for more. After getting in trouble with his family over the summer, Harry bails and goes to spend the rest of it with his friend Ron and the Weasley family. They can’t get onto the train that takes them to Hogwarts and get into detention. Unsurprisingly, a lot more happens in this book. Harry learns he can speak Parseltongue, Ron’s sister Ginny disappears, the Chamber of Secrets is opened and it’s up to Harry, Ron and Hermione to try and save the day yet again.
