As our adventure with Harry Potter continued, we began to see what happened after Harry and his friends experienced their first year at Hogwarts. It wasn't always sunshine and rainbows, or magic and wonder...and they'd only grow to learn that there would be a bigger evil to face than they ever could have imagined.

"Throughout the summer holidays after his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter has been receiving sinister warnings from a house-elf called Dobby.
Now, back at school to start his second year, Harry hears unintelligible whispers echoing through the corridors.
Before long the attacks begin: students are found as if turned to stone.
Dobby’s predictions seem to be coming true
." - J.K. Rowling

What was your favorite part of Chamber Of Secrets? What did you first think was happening as the students turned to stone? Let's talk about our second adventure with Harry Potter, here.

I really don't remember what I thought about it all when I read it for the first time. It was quite a long time ago.

While it's not my favorite book from the series, its plot is prime material for a fanfic. I loved getting into Ginny's head and trying to figure out how Tom Riddle manipulated her and everything else that was happening behind the scenes - things Harry didn't know where happening. Tom's a fun character

The biggest plot hole I had to find a way around was Dumbledore - what was he doing for all of these months? Why weren't better precautions taken?
How did they stop parents from pulling their children out of school? (hint - they lied)
