This week's Fan of the Week is Michele from New York, US. She is 17 years old, and tells us how she came to love Harry Potter:
"I became a fan when I was in kindergarten and struggled through Philosopher’s Stone. There were two problems: the fact that I was barely six years old and not capable of reading full-length books on my own, and the fact that I somehow ended up with the British version. The fact that I stuck with the series despite the odds probably says a lot about how intensely I was impacted. This whole experience is documented in a really old Harry Potter-themed journal I have where my 6-year-old self drew a really dramatic picture of my older sister handing me the Harry Potter books that were published at the time with a quote bubble saying, “It’s your turn now.”
