Fearing the worst, he collects his belongings and flees. While not knowing where to go he sees a large dog. As a result of the fright he manages to summon the Knight Bus and gets a ride to the Leaky Cauldron. He’s not in as much trouble as he thought. He stays at the pub till school starts.

On the train, they meet their new professor, Lupin. Dementors search the train looking for Sirius Black. Apparently, he’s escaped from Azkeban. In a tragic twist of fate, he’s also Harry’s Godfather.

It’s a tumultuous year. Harry is nearly killed by dementors several times, Lupin turns into a werewolf and almost kills Harry and friends, and the truth about what happens to Harry’s parents comes out.

Book: Bones of Betrayal by Jefferson Bass (Body Farm #4)

This book left me speechless. Clearly, my high school history class left a lot out.

Dr. Brockton is called to Oak Ridge to assist with removal of a body from a frozen pool. The victim turns out to be Leonard Novak, a scientist from the Oak Ridge facility of the Manhattan Project.

The autopsy takes a life-threatening turn for Dr. Garcia and Miranda. In a single moment, a small pebble, which turns out to be highly radioactive, changes their lives forever. As both get hit with radiation levels that are extremely high. Dr. Garcia got more exposure than anyone because the body was in the morgue for nearly 24 hours and he was exposed for over 10 hours. He also held the pebble in his hands. Miranda also held it with her fingers but only for seconds.

This book covers a lot of history regarding the Manhattan Project. It weaves a tale of murders, revenge, espionage, betrayal and lives destroyed.

Who killed Leonard Novak? What secret was he being blackmailed about? What was the radiation source that Miranda and Dr. Garcia were exposed to? Do they survive the radiations effects?

What is killing these animals and people? Why do they look as if they have been scoured? Will Mulder and Scully be the next victims? Is the killer a human or a supernatural entity?

The case takes us to Knoxville at the top of a hill. A charred female body is found in a burned card. The only way Dr. Brockton can figure out what really happened is to burn dead bodies.

Of course, he can never just deal with a case. He also gets a mysterious package. It’s a set of cremations that don’t look like they should. So now he’s investigating two cases simultaneously. However, this one leads him to a crematorium that doesn’t do it’s just correctly.

Now, Garland Hamilton, Jess’s murderer, has escaped. And now it’s all about not dying while Hamilton and he play a frighteningly deadly game of cat and mouse.

With the help of Art and Miranda can Brockton get to the bottom of all these deaths and find Hamilton before he gets murdered?

Book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

I was first introduced to this book series by my third graders when I was a teacher. I still love these books and reread them every few years.

Harry’s parents are killed protecting him from Lord Voldemort (also known as “He Who Must Not Be Named.” One of the most evil wizards in the world. As a result Harry grows up with his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon, quite sour and dour people. His cousin Dudley is even worse.

As a child he was lied to and told his parents died in a car accident. So when he gets a letter from Hogwarts he has no idea what it is. Luckily, Professor Dumbledore sends Hagrid to assist Harry in his school preparations. Since Uncle Vernon keeps moving the family it does pose a challenge. However, once Hagrid explains, as best as he can, to Harry about who he is Harry is thrilled to go to Hogwarts.

Once at school he is put into Gryffindor House, just like his parents. His first year is going as expected until it is discovered he’s a natural on a broom. He becomes the teams Seeker.

We also have a third floor corridor off limits this school year. It turns out that is where the Sorcerer’s Stone is being kept under heavy guard. Fluffy (a three headed dog) is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s clearly being protected from Voldemort.
