 In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, by J.K. Rowling, Voldemort has returned, but no one wants to believe it.  Also, the new defense against the dark arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge, enjoys giving her students detentions and hard times, especially Harry.  She takes away Quidditch, makes him right with a pen that etches words into his hands, takes away all communication from Sirius, and makes ridiculous decrees banning the students from many activities that interfere with the Ministry of Magic. While all of this happens, Harry must deal with haunting images and strong feelings that come from Lord Voldemort's mind. He also has to face cruel words coming from the wizarding world because they won't believe his story about the Dark Lord's return. Harry's fifth year at Hogwarts gives him many challenges to face.

I reccomend this book to people who have already read the four books before this one. People who can keep themselves reading a book will find thier time well spent when done reading it.
