Thirteen year-old Harry Potter has reluctantly spent yet another summer
with the Dursleys, his dismal relatives, "behaving himself" and not
practicing any magic. That is, until Uncle Vernon's bullying sister,
Aunt Marge, comes to visit. Aunt Marge has always been particularly
horrible to Harry and this time pushes him so far that he "accidentally"
causes her to inflate like a monstrous balloon and drift away! Fearing
punishment from his Aunt and Uncle--and repercussions from Hogwarts and
the Ministry of Magic, which strictly forbids students from using magic
in the non-magic world--Harry escapes into the night. Along the way,
Harry will try to make sense of Hermione's puzzling appearances and
disappearances, with the help of Ron and the giant Hagrid, who has taken
on a new position at Hogwarts as the Care of Magical Creatures teacher.
A confrontation between Harry and the menacing Sirius Black seems
inevitable, but what exactly is Professor Lupin's relationship with
Black? What is the dark secret that Professor Snape is so eager to
reveal? And just why is Ron's pet rat Scabbers so frantic to escape his
grasp? Harry will need all of the courage, magic and support he can
muster to answer these questions and uncover the truth behind Sirius
Black and his ties to the gifted young wizard's mysterious past.
