Did you grow up with Harry Potter and cry when you read the last page of the last book? I certainly shed some tears, more because it was the last book than because the ending was sad. Ever since I have been on the hunt for books that could help fill the void left by Harry and his friends. Admittedly most of these series do not involve midnight release parties and have yet to make it to Hollywood, but they do have fast friends, intriguing school-time shenanigans, and elements out of the ordinary. Do you have other books to add to this list?
