The Book "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" is the third installation in the Harry Potter series. It is a coming of age book following the protagonist Harry Potter and his two best friends, Ron and Hermione, dealing with the news of an escaped convict. A prisoner from the wizard prison of Azkaban has escaped who the trio believe was a close associate of the Dark Lord, Voldemort, which concerns them due to history between Harry and Voldemort. This is met with many twist and a shocking revelation which will blow your mind.
I personally enjoyed the entire franchise as a whole and particularly this entry. It introduces a character which becomes crucial to the rest of the story. Sirius Black gives a sort of father figure and gives a family aspect to Harry. This begins the change in Harry which will later be present in future books. This along with lots of underlying tones such as lying media with the way Sirius black was portrayed. I would recommend this to teens who typically enjoy fantasy books such as Percy Jackson as it has many of the genres tropes and surprising levels of depth with character development. This book seems to be a balanced book between suspense, action, and Character development. This is why it is overall a great book, but especially why the youth would enjoy it.
