In 2005, YJI reporter Kassandra Ricci, then a teen living in Massachusetts, went out at midnight to get her hands on a copy of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" as soon as it came out.
To Kassandra's delight and amazement, she found that little Harry was growing up in all kinds of wonderful ways.
As we lead up to the release of the latest Harry Potter flick on Friday, we're reviewing the 10 years of coverage Youth Journalism International has offered of the boy wizard. Kassandra's piece is just the latest, but stay tuned, muggles, there's more of our Potter Palooza to come!
Attention muggles: Harry Potter is growing up
By Kassandra Ricci
I've always been a big Harry Potter fan, so naturally I attended a midnight party to get my copy of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince as soon as possible.
I rushed home to start reading what I hoped to be a good book. It turned out to better then a good. It was amazing.
