This week we hear from Year 7 Cameron who has written a book review. Thank you, Cameron.


The book is very good at introducing us to the world of Harry Potter. The story was also good at foreshadowing later events in the series such as Snape and Lily’s relationship. This happened in Snape’s first lesson with Harry when he asked the question “What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?” According to the Victorian flower language, asphodel, which is a type of flower meaning my regrets follow you to the grave, meaning he is sad for Lily’s death. We find out he was in love with Lilly Evans. Harry’s mother.
