Title: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Author: J.K. Rowling
Ages: 10+
Rating: 5

J.K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter stories have grabbed millions of readers all over the world and now the wait for her sixth book is over with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It's packed full of Harry Potter goodness and really spills the beans about Voldemort's history. Check out our review!

Back to Hogwarts with Harry, Hermione and Ron

Harry and his friends are 16 now and this year at Hogwarts is a big one for them. There are Apparition classes, the wizardly equivalent of a driver's licence! Plus, everybody's hormones start flaring, Ron gets his first kiss and there's an explosion of dating drama that could keep Dear Dish-It busy for years!

Magic and Mystery

All the action at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is amazing. J.K. Rowling does an excellent job with this new story. She mixes action and romance with a dose of mystery and a side order of excitement. What's really incredible though is how much Harry grows up and how well he handles his responsibilities. It's also incredible to find out about Voldemort's history and the secrets of his power.

Dark Arts and Dastardly Deeds at Hogwarts

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is full of nasty folks doing evil things. Draco Malfoy is back and there are Death Eaters around every corner - but there's nothing in this book that isn't fun to read. Even when someone dies, it's way better than what happened to poor Sirius Black.

The Bottom Line

O for outstanding! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is one of the best Harry Potter books so far and will keep you glued to the pages until you're done. It has one heck of an ending too! If you've read it, what do you think of the ending?

Both of the candidates are horrible in my opinion. As to who will win, there's no questions asked, Hillary will win. To me, it's very obvious at this point. Good thing she will only be in office for four years, because there's not a chance that she wins two elections in a row.

"Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:Since the baby isn't fully developed at that point it can not feel, learn, think, remember etc. so aborting it up until that point is completely harmless cause the baby has yet to know anything its basically just a wad of cells like a tumor till about 6 months in term.  First off, thank you for the dedicated comment. I hope you'll be okay if my response is also as lengthy.  Secondly, most of what you said is false. By week sixteen of pregnancy, the baby's nervous system is developing. By the eighteenth week, the head can be distinguished from the rest of the body. At week 22, the baby's lungs are functioning correctly, the baby has hair, the baby can hear and distinguish sounds, and can also suck their thumb. Finally, by week 25, the nervous system is fully connected from the brain to the rest of the body.  An abortion at the end of six months would be at the 26th week of pregnancy.  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:Aborting a baby in those months is literally like throwing away an egg that happened to grow No, it would be like breaking the egg and ripping the baby bird inside limb from limb...which is what an abortion is. The baby is in an egg, and then it's shredded and sucked out. It's not wrong to throw away the egg of a chicken, just as it's not wrong to eat a hen. However, we can agree that it is wrong to eat a human being. Clearly, there's a big difference between humans and animals, so you can't make these sorts of analogies.  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote: in the United States thousands of people go bankrupt from medical bills including bills for child birth (which is ridiculous I don't think anyone should be charged for giving birth, thank god for canada's medical system) and that can put the mother out on the street homeless with a baby Thousands of people go bankrupt from medical bills if they have a very sick child, that doesn't give them a right to kill their kid does it?  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:Having a baby isn't a good option for everyone, think about girls in school or college who get forced or whose partner convinces them not to use protection and then run out on them? If a woman is forced into pregnancy, I find it a moral disaster. I think that the father should be brought to justice. But, the mother still has the responsibility of being a mother, no matter how fair or unfair it may be for her. The responsibility has been thrust upon her, it should not have been, but killing a child to unburden the mother is just as unjustified as the #### itself.  Now, if a woman is convinced into not using protection, then it is her choice to shoulder the consequences. She consented.  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:. And what about Mothers who just don't want that stress on their body? Cause birth is painful and exhausting and it can physically change a person. Then they should not have chosen to get pregnant in the first place, of if they were forced, then killing a child is still not a justifiable means to end her discomfort.  "Wishyouweremehehe wrote:And what of the girls who it would possibly die when giving birth ? Then a doctor should determine which human life is more viable, and make every effort to save that life.  "Wishyouweremehehe wrote:I strongly believe that no one should be able to force a person to something with their own body that they don't want to, now I don't exactly recommend abortion but I believe a woman would know when its a good time or not for her to have a baby. And by "their own body", you're referring to the body inside a mother, right? See, there's another living being inside of the mother, and what she does with her body effects her son/daughter directly.  Also, what do you mean by a "good time" to have a baby? That's so subjective. You want to hinge a baby's life on how a mother feels?  "Wishyouweremehehe" wrote:If a man can walk out of a pregnancy so can a woman. Sorry, but that's just not true, for the very fact that a man doesn't get pregnant and a woman does. The situations are different.
