Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter #8) by J.K. Rowling and Jack Thorne

I am a huge Harry Potter fan and have loved them since the first time I read them in third grade. So I was super excited for there to be more in Harry Potter’s story and in the Wizarding World with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling and Jack Thorne. Although I was a little skeptical of it being in the format of a play. But now I have read it and loved it, there are parts that are terrible, it just gets so sad, but then it gets good again and the goodness makes the sadness it causes worth it. It made me very emotional and there was a fair amount of screaming involved while reading it. It is about Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy, the son of Draco Malfoy, who befriend each other and try to find how they fit in at Hogwarts with their parents pasts burdening them. This has enough of the old characters to make you happy while it also introduces new characters. Since it was in a play format (and maybe because I read it in one day) it felt like everything happened in a bit of a rushed way, although I feel like if you watch it it will make a bit more sense. It also doesn’t feel very real, not in the writing, but in the being back at Hogwarts. But other then that I LOVED it. I would recommend this book to any Harry Potter fan, but make sure you make it all the way through it. It seems at times that things are never going to get better but they do, you just have to keep reading and it is worth it.
