It's the sixth year of Hogwarts witchcraft of wizardry for Harry Potter . Professor Dumbledore persuades Professor Slughorn to come back from retirement and become a potion teacher for Hogwarts. Then Professor Snape gets to be the defense against the dark arts teacher. Throughout the store Harry, dumbledore and his friends have faced many challenges. During the story Harry and Dumbledore are looking for Horcurxes. In order for Harry and Dumbledore to defeat Voldemort they have to find the Horcurxes . The conflict is between Harry and Lord Voldemort. Voldemort had hidden the Horcurxes years ago and Harry and Dumbledore have to find them now. So noth of them have to leave the school to find them. The theme is even if you lost someone very important you continue on and work or fight even harder than ever . In the book it says they lost the greatest wizard of the Wizarding community. This was a good book because it shows great role models . In the story when the lost someone very important.
