Hi! Post back and tell how Harry Potter has changed you, as a person. How you look at things, etc.
(I read Harry Potter halfway through 8th grade, and I wish I had had it for 6th and seventh, too.)
Firstly, Hermione became my alter ego and I became a self motivated, straight A student.
Now I just do my absolute best with everything becasue she makes it cool to be a nerd...
I became more responsible because of Hermione.
Seeing how Harry suffered at the Durselys' made me put my studpid little problems in perspective.
Seeing how cooly weird Luna is made me accept myself as an individual, if you know what I mean. Like, before hand I was obsessed with conforming and being popular, and Luna made me step back and realize that there's only one of me. And my friendships have actually improved since then.
I became a better writer, and now I use english terms like "git," "prat," "oi," and "snog."
Harry showed me that you need to believe in yourself and know who your true friends are, even when eveyone hates you. (I really could have used this in 6th and 7th grade)
