Chapter Three - The Dursleys Departing

Harry says farewell to the Dursleys in this chapter. In a somewhat surprising turn of events, Dudley and Harry share a special moment of thanks and forgiveness before the Dursleys depart for good to be protected by the Order. The moment shows just how much their relationship has changed since the first book. Have you experienced a similar change among your own group of friends? Is there someone new you met and enjoyed getting to know better? In a group with two or three other students, discuss how you think Harry and Dudley's relationship has changed for the better, and how you think Harry's life might have been different if they had gotten along sooner.
