Harry was being a jerk, or that's what a lot of kids thought when they read the last few books of JK Rowling's series. Many adult readers chocked up his quick temper, anxiety and defensiveness to typical teen angst. But what if Harry Potter was suffering from PTSD? The writers July Westhale and Sarah Gailey explain how JK Rowling captured the nature of trauma, and why re-reading Harry Potter helped them heal. Capser ter Kuile and Vanessa Zoltan of the podcast Harry Potter and the Sacred Text explore the burden of being the boy who lived.
