Harry is spending an agitating summer in Privet Drive: not only is he bracing himself for the catastrophe that is certain to accompany Voldemort's return, but he has had little contact from the wizarding world. When Harry and his cousin Dudley are attacked by Dementors in Little Whinging, Harry repels them with a Patronus Charm.
Ron and Hermione are named prefects, leaving Harry somewhat upset. When Harry, Ron and Hermione return to Hogwarts, they are surprised to hear that Dolores Umbridge, Senior Undersecretary to the Minister, is the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher.
Harry has been having disturbing dreams about running down a hallway and attempting to open a door in the Ministry of Magic's Department of Mysteries. He also dreams he is a snake attacking Ron's father.
Umbridge is then appointed Headmistress and imposes even tighter control. Fed up, the Weasley twins instigate and lead a revolt/rebellion, such as setting off a massive display of fireworks display in and around the school, much to the dismay of Umbridge. The staff, mostly loyal to Dumbledore, do not help her either; in fact they take pleasure in the mayhem. This marks the end of Fred and George's magical education, who now opt to move into their magical tricks and joke shop in Diagon Alley, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. After Fred and George leave, with many disastrous games under his belt, Ron finally pulls himself together and has a good game during the Finals, helping Gryffindor win the quidditch cup, and changing "Weasley is our King" from a negative to a positive for Gryffindor.
Harry receives a vision while fallin asleep in his History of Magic OWL exam, that Sirius is being tortured at the Department of Mysteries, Harry desperately attempts to contact Sirius at Grimmauld Place via the Floo Network in Umbridge's office fireplace, but he is caught. .
Dumbledore apologizes to Harry for withholding information over the past 5 years. He reveals the lost prophecy given to him by Sybill Trelawney, for it was to him that it was first told: either Harry or Voldemort must die at the hands of the other, for neither can live while the other survives. Dumbledore also reveals that, due to when the boy was predicted to be born, Neville Longbottom could also have been the child in the prophecy. Dumbledore believes Voldemort chose to attack Harry because he is a half-blood like himself; Neville is a pureblood. In so doing, the Dark Lord marked Harry as his equal. Dumbledore also discloses why he continues to send Harry back to the Dursleys' home for the summer. He tells Harry that when his mother died to protect him, this initiated an ancient magic. As long as Harry stays at the house of his blood-relative long enough to call it a home, it would provide for him a shield protection not even Voldemort is able to overcome. Futhermore, Dumbledore explains to Harry why he had not made him a prefect: he thought that Harry had enough to worry about and did not want to burden him with more responsibilities.
Just before the end of the school year, Harry confronts Nearly Headless Nick, and asks if Sirius can come back as a ghost. Nick explains that Sirius "will have...gone on", as very few wizards and witches choose to remain on Earth as ghosts. Still overcome with grief, Harry finds Luna Lovegood sticking posters asking for the whereabouts of her lost possessions. She tells Harry that while some students harass her by taking her items and hiding them, she calmly replies that "They'll come back in the end, they always do." Taking this in context with his recent loss of Sirius, Harry feels slightly better.Source(s): myself
