To Harry’s disappointment, his return to Hogwarts is quite ill-fortuned as he discovers that much of the wizarding community see him as a liar and that only a few of students and parents believe his or Dumbledore’s story that the evil Lord Voldemort is really back, putting Harry's integrity into question. To make matters worse, in an unscrupulous attempt to keep an eye on Dumbledore and Harry, the Minister of Magic appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, the duplicitous Professor Dolores Umbridge, the nastiest person Harry has ever encountered. Professor Umbridge's "Ministry-approved" course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards sadly ill-equipped to shield themselves against the Dark forces threatening them, putting all of them at risk. It is through the encouragement of his friends, Hermione and Ron, that Harry decides to take matters into his own hands by holding a secret gathering with a small group of students who have named themselves "Dumbledore's Arm." Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the brave young wizards for the amazing battle that lies before them.
And, although Harry takes every opportunity to steal glances at the beautiful Cho Chang, he remains ostracized and alone. Furthermore, Harry finds himself overwhelmed by nightmares that seem to prophesize menacing events, and, the one person who counsel he needs most, Professor Dumbledore, is suddenly acting strangely distant, leaving Harry confused and distressed.
With Harry having to face so many obstacles, his fifth year begins one of his toughest years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
