Written by J.K. Rowling, the series begins with Harry as a young boy with a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead, raised by his muggle (non-wizard) family. Harry received the shock of his life upon discovering that he was a wizard; from in his enrolment to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, to his new friends and the adventures embarked upon, his life was never the same.
