Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!</p><p><em>Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is also available as an Illustrated Kindle-in-Motion edition.</em><p>

<b><i>New York Times</i> Bestseller and winner of the Carnegie Medal! <b>"Masterfully crafted"<b>—</b><i>The Wall Street Journal</i></b><br /><br />For readers of <b><i>Between Shades of Gray</i> and<i> All the Light We Cannot See</i>, Ruta Sepetys </b>returns to WWII <b>in this epic novel that </b>shines a light on one of the war's most devastating—yet unknown—tragedies.<br /></b><br />World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, many with something to hide. Among them are Joana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to the ship that promises salvation, the <i>Wilhelm Gustloff.</i> Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other tested with each step closer to safety.<br /><br /> Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Not country, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand people—adults and children alike—aboard must fight for the same thing: survival.<br /><br />Told in alternating points of view and perfect for fans of Anthony Doerr's Pulitzer Prize-winning <i>All the Light We Cannot See</i>, Erik Larson's <i>Dead Wake</i>, and Elizabeth Wein's Printz Honor Book <i>Code Name Verity</i>, this masterful work of historical fiction is inspired by the real-life tragedy that was the sinking of the<i><b> </b>Wilhelm Gustloff<b>—</b></i>the greatest maritime disaster in history.
