SummariesAdd a Summary
Harry Potter is spending another horrible summer with his dreadful Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon when a group of evil spirits called Dementors stage an unexpected attack on Harry and his cousin Dudley. After he uses magic to defend himself and Dudley, an act that later gets Harry expelled from Hogwarts, he is visited by a group of wizards and Madeye Moody and the is whisked off to number 12, Grimmauld Place, London. Number 12 is the home of Harry's godfather, Sirius Black, and the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix. The Order is a group of witches and wizards, led by Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore, dedicated to fighting the evil Lord Voldemort and his followers. The Order is forced to operate in secrecy, outside of the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Magic, which is headed by the dense and corrupt Cornelius Fudge. Fudge refuses to believe that Lord Voldemort has returned. Harry, who witnessed Voldemort's return the previous June and was tortured and nearly murdered by him, is suffering from nightmares about what has happened to him. He is also angry with those he is close to, especially Ron and Hermione. Harry used magic to fight off the dementors, and since underage wizards are not permitted to use their wands outside of school, he must face a disciplinary hearing at the Ministry. With Dumbledore's help, Harry is cleared by the Wizengamot and permitted to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.
Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.
What’s comin’ will come and we’ll meet it when it does.
You sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.
The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by an invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing.
Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike …We wizards have mistreated and abused our fellows for too long, and we are now reaping our reward.
Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness.
Harry, suffering like this proves you are still a man! This pain is part of being human … the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.
