unusual contest that challenges his wizarding skills, friendships and
character, amid signs that an old enemy is growing stronger.
What I thought: The one where it all really starts to happen! For me, this is the first of the books you could class as young adult. I know that when it came out I was working as a teacher librarian in a primary school and there was much discussion about whether it should be in the library. At our local library it is the last one to be in the junior fiction area.
It's also the first book that starts to examine the characters and their feelings further. There is the beginning of attraction to the opposite sex, jealousy, betrayal and death to deal with. The end of the book sets the scene perfectly for the next book.
