The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone -- or something -- starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself?

        This book is so good! The only problem that I had with it is, that (if you don't want a spoiler then stop reading) Tom Riddle and him had a 6 page talk and a one paragraph battle with the basilisk and Harry.

                I am reading this book at school and I really do like it even though I am only on page 28 it does really tell you a lot about it, and it has a lot of words so it will keep you there and it gets me to a point that I do not what to put the book down and that will happen to you to . If you are a big Harry potter fan then I think you will love this book because I know I do it's a really, really great book.
