Harry finds himself at the Dursleys again with only his owl to keep him company. Harry could not do his homework or practice Quidditch, a wizard sport, where you fly on brooms. Uncle Vernon had them all locked up in a room and Harry knew that they did not care if he lost his place in the Quidditch team or if he went back to school without his homework done.
One day, when the Dursleys were downstairs, greeting the Mason family, Harry finds himself in his cupboard under the stairs with a house-elf called Dobby. Dobby warns him not to return to Hogwarts. Harry discovers that Dobby has been stopping all of his letters. He could even distinguish the neat handwriting of Hermione and Ron’s untidy scrawl.
Since Harry refuses to not go to Hogwarts, Dobby performs a Hover charm and Harry gets a letter from the Ministry of Magic warning him not to perform any more magic, much to his annoyance.
Harry is locked up in his cupboard and luckily, Ron, Fred, and George come to rescue him in a flying car! Reached at The Burrow, the Weasley brothers get shouted at by their mother, Molly Weasley.

This book was AMAZING. It was much more mysterious and suspense than book 1.
I really recommend to read the whole book series. They are my favourite.
