Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

By Lindsey Michelena & Maria Yniguez

 

  • Warning: This book review is on the sequel/8th book of the Harry Potter series, so it may contain some spoilers for people who have not finished the Harry Potter series.

 

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a fantasy play about the next generation of wizards, which is Harry Potter’s kids. His son, Albus, is attending Hogwarts for his first year. He is friends with Rose, the daughter of Hermione and Ron. Albus soon befriends Scorpius Malfoy, the son of Draco Malfoy. Rose automatically does not trust or like Scorpius, as he is the son of Draco Malfoy, so she stops hanging out with Albus to prevent having to hang out with Scorpius. Albus already has a reputation, being the famous Harry Potter’s son, but quickly changes it, as he is not at all like Harry Potter. For example, during flying practice, Albus fails, despite his father being an amazing flyer and Quidditch player. And worst of all, he is sorted into Slytherin instead of Gryffindor. One day, Amos Diggory, Cedric Diggory’s father, comes to Harry asking for him to use a Time Turner to turn back time and save his son from death in the Triwizard Tournament. Harry refuses, and Albus decides to secretly take on the task, with Scorpius at his side, to prove himself to everyone. They keep messing up time, though, and this affects the whole future. This is a magical book that won’t be forgotten, just like the previous books in the Harry Potter series.
