Where do Harry Potter live, when he not are together with all his friends at Hogwarts? He lives with his uncle and aunt in Privet Drive. They do not belong to the magic world, they don’t like Harry, and he does certainly not like them too. Harry loves Ron’s family, and Ron’s mother says, that Harry should come and live with them in the holidays. Why did he always spend his holidays with his ugly and snubbed family? In one of the other books are we told, that their home is the only place outside Hogwarts, where Harry can be safe for Lord Voldemort.

I can't find the rest of the mistakes! Can anyone give me a hint?
