2010 book 31

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Even when you've read a book a million times, there are still new things to notice and think about. For instance, I really liked that in this one, at the end, Harry and Ron actually try to get adult help--first they try McGonagall and then end up settling for Lockhart, not realizing exactly how hopeless he is. (It always kind of annoys me in these kinds of books when kids won't confide even in trusted adults when things are totally dire.) Anyway, that's not something I'd ever thought much about before, so like I said, there's always a reason to reread!
