Thank you for your post Valarie! I was making fun of this book to a middle-schooler of my acquaintance yesterday, but perhaps she'd like it. Why not throw some $ Mugglenet's way; Lemony Snicket surely fleeced the kiddles for every penny with "what will happen?" books and then he left so many loose ends in The End that we all felt like Abderites (here meaning a slur that the Ancient Greeks used for being stupid) for ever caring at all.

Hey, don't knock it till you try it! What Will Happen in HP7? sorts out lots of the many mysteries that we're hoping will be resolved in book 7. Here's a great example (geek-out alert for any of you non-HP fans). Dumbledore tells us that you need two people to steal the locket from the cave in HP6, because whoever drinks the potion will be too weak to steal it on his own. We know RAB made it there before Dumbledore, and most fan speculation has fixated on whether or not RAB was Regulus Black. But what most fans have overlooked is this: who did RAB go into the cave with to retrieve the locket? The mugglenet authors of the book ultimately conclude that it was Regulus Black, and that he went into the cave with Kreacher. If you can get past the typos and the repetitive nature of some of the chapters, that's the kind of interesting stuff that the mugglenet book comes up with.
