The story follows Harry Potter's first year at Hogwarts as he discovers that he is a famous wizard and begins his magical education.
From being a solitary, ill-adapted, and abused orphan, Harry Potter embarks on a journey to grow into his full potential as one of the most talented wizards in the world. Will he have the strength, courage and skill to stand up against the most evil and feared dark Wizard the magical community has ever known?
