Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry spent as much time as possible out of the house, wandering around and thinking about the end of the holidays, where he could see a tiny ray of hope. When September came he would be going off to secondary school and, for the first time in his life, he wouldn't be with Dudley.
Dudley had been accepted at Uncle Vernon's old private school, Smeltings. (3.3)
…Harry could hardly believe it when he realized that he'd already been at Hogwarts two months. The castle felt more like home than Privet Drive ever had. (10.66)
"I do feel so sorry," said Draco Malfoy, one Potions class, "for all those people who have to stay at Hogwarts for Christmas because they're not wanted at home." …
It was true that Harry wasn't going back to Privet Drive for Christmas… He didn't feel sorry for himself at all; this would probably be the best Christmas he'd ever had. (12.3, 12.5)
