Welcome to Harry Potter Answers. What would you like to know?

Since Voldemort's soul was so splintered, it was quite fragile. When his Killing Curse rebounded upon him, it blasted a piece of it off. That piece attached itself to the only living thing in the room, Harry. He is not an "official" horcrux, but a piece of Voldemort's soul resided in Harry until Voldemort hit him with the Killing Curse a second time.
