I was wondering if anyone out there had an answer for me to a question I have. In book one Hagrid told Harry that James and Lily were Head Boy and Girl when they were at Hogwarts; but in book five Sirius told Harry that James Potter wasn't a prefect.

Call me crazy but I always thought that u needed to make prefect in order to have that job. And with James Potter's reputation as a troublemaker how could he have made Head Boy? Can Someone tell me if the mistake lies with me or with J.K. Rowling herself? Or is there no mistake at all and there's something I don't know yet?

There is no "rule" so to speak that says you need to be prefect to make head boy/girl. If I'm not mistaken, they reference this in book 5.

Lupin and Sirius both say (after a run-in Harry has with Snape in book 5, I won't say more than that in case someone hasn't read it) that James settled down as he got older, and was quite wild as a 15-year-old. In any case, being wild doesn't mean that you can't make prefect, even. See Harry's discussion with Dumbledore at the end of book 5 and you'll notice that Harry's troublemaking isn't what kept him from being a prefect.
