"Chasing Jordan is a story of love and loss with a thunderclap at his heart. Ms. Boehringer notifies with this first novel that she is a writer to watch. This is my type of novel. I'm going to read anything that Heidi Boehringer writes next."—Harry Crews When Meg approaches home in the back seat... with her daughter, she sees her husband spying on the neighbor, who in very short shorts is gardening. She hits and kills her two-year-old son, Jordan, in this moment of distraction With both provocative and utterly unpredictable humor, Chasing Jordan shows how twisted and dangerous is the road to forgiveness.

Quotes from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

And they'd [the Death Eaters] love to have me," said Harry sarcastically. "We'd be best pals if they didn't keep trying to do me in.

Have to? Of course you have to! But only because of you, Harry, won't rest until Voldemort is finished! Think now, for once, if you have never heard of the prophecy! What would you do?

Harry, despite your privileged insight into Voldemort’s world (which, incidentally, is a gift any Death Eater would kill to have), you have never been seduced by the Dark Arts, never, even for a second, shown the slightest desire to become one of Voldemort’s followers!
Of course I haven’t! said Harry indignantly. He killed my mum and dad!
You are protected, in short, by your ability to love! said Dumbledore loudly.

Did you know— then? asked Harry.
Did I know that I had just met the most dangerous Dark wizard of all time? No.

Because to confide a part of your soul to something that can think and move for itself is obviously a very risky business.

Voldemort himself created his worst enemy, just as tyrants everywhere do! Have you any idea how much tyrants fear the people they oppress? All of them realize that, one day, amongst their many victims, there is sure to be one who rises against them and strikes back!

Reviews of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

If Harry grew up in the last book, here he becomes a man, learning the true impact of the last book's prophecy, and the importance of love as the antidote to fear.

...this is a coming-of-age story that chronicles the hero's evolution not only by showing his maturation through a series of grueling tests, but also by detailing the growing emotional wisdom he gains from understanding more and more about the past.

The odd glumness of this novel is partly a consequence of its loss of a satisfying plot, its lack of shape...We must not think that she is making her stories up on the hoof, even though the idea of there being seven books, one for each of Harry's years at Hogwarts, must have come to her only belatedly.

If you have been waiting for this for months, rest assured: this is the series’ The Empire Strikes Back. The stakes are even higher and the surprises bigger than you imagine, and despite the usual problems of editing and focus, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince delivers the goods...
