Young wizard-in-training Harry Potter prepares for a competition between Hogwarts School of Magic and two rival schools, develops a crush on Cho Chang, and wishes above all to be a normal fourteen-year-old.
Dangerous competitions, subterfuge, and the Dark Mark mingle in this fourth explosive installment of the internationally adored Harry Potter series. The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is hosting the first Triwizard Tournament in a century, a contest that pits Hogwarts against two other powerful schools of the magical arts. By tradition, the Goblet of Fire names the one lucky student from each institution--three in all--chosen to participate in the prestigious event. However, this year, the Goblet calls out a fourth name as well--that of 14-year-old Harry Potter. Terrified of magic far more advanced than anything he's mastered, Harry must put up with school-wide suspicions that he cheated his way into the event. And then he must face life-threatening tasks. But at the same time, Harry develops a crush on the lovely Cho Chang of Ravenclaw, and this distracts him from his mounting difficulties. Both a year 2000 New York Times Notable Book and a Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2000.
