Today on YA Rewind, I talk about Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling and the tremendous impact the boy wizard has had on my life. After, I spend some time on the Casting Couch discussing the first movie adaptation, its problems and successes, and why I would actually approve of a reboot in ten years.
Harry Potter thinks he’s an ordinary boy – until he is rescued by an owl, taken to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, learns to play Quidditch and does battle in a deadly duel. The Reason: HARRY POTTER IS A WIZARD!
-from the 1997 Bloomsbury paperback edition
