Summary

Harry Potter believes he’s an ordinary boy living a rather miserable life. His cruel Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley bully him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. He believes his parents died in a car crash, making him an orphan who has no choice but to stay with them.
Then one day, a rather remarkable thing happens to this seemingly unremarkable boy. An owl arrives with a letter that reveals his birthright, offering him a place at the prestigious Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
