Dear J.K. Rowling,
Some people read books to pass the time, others, because everybody's reading it. But I read books for my life. Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of Azkaban is the most powerful to me. Whenever I read Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban, I feel like I'm there, watching, hearing, and feeling their adventures. It's like being in another world.
While reading your book, I started to think about life and my own family. I started to think to myself, "Why don't I have a life like everybody else?" I mean I live in a noisy apartment. I have only one parent, (Who is great!), and we aren't as wealthy as other people. Then I started to think about the situation Harry was in, (NO parents, lives in a cupboard, and has no money!!!). After that, I began to be more grateful for what I had and would have in the future.
My mom left my dad after mom got pregnant. My mom moved from California to Iowa to be closer to family for my birth. They weren't married and my mother was scared I wouldn't be healthy. And now, I think of Harry, whose parents were murdered when he was a baby. So, now I may never see my dad, but I'm thankful for my mom and life, and the characters of Harry Potter.
I share some qualities with Hermione Granger. Like I wish I had a time turner, too. And, I sometimes struggle to juggle homework, band, T.V., bedtime, and fun. Both Hermione and I are smart, fun, and determined to do whatever we want! Hermione brings smarts, ideas, and fun to the Harry Potter series. I feel connected to her in the book the most, because sometimes in the book, she does things I would do in that situation. She is truly my favorite Harry Potter character.
So, that's what I think of the Harry Potter book, The Prisoner Of Azkaban, I am so happy and grateful for you to spend a couple of minutes reading my letter. This book is so good and has changed my perspective on my dad and life. Thank you!
