I'm really confused by the fact that it's not registering the fact that I'm logged on... but, hey! It's AC_rules here reviewing for the Ravenclaw review battle (hopefully by the time I actually get to post this review I'll have worked out what the issue is).

I liked the idea behind the story. I haven't seen many stories when the parents completely reject the idea of magic in an almost Dursey-esque way (only worse, because they actually chuck her out), but I wasn't really sure I could buy into the idea that this was such an easy decision for her parents to make. I think, maybe, you should make it clear that this is something that has been discussed before and that... hmmm... maybe that the parents still find it difficult? Because I shouldn't imagine abandoning your child is particularly easy, even if you are slightly cruel.

I like your character. Alex is spunky and interesting for an eleven year old (I'm assuming she's eleven?). Her interactions with McGonagal were my favourite parts of the chapter. Great start to a story! Definitely intrigued :)

I know what you mean. That's one of the things I really don't like about the first chapter, that it make some people think, 'This is way too over-exaggerated,' and then they stop reading. Later on, however, it's revealed that her parents had a reason to throw her out (not a good reason, as there are none for abandoning your kid, but a reason nonetheless) and that it wasn't just on a whim.

Yup, she's eleven, and that's actually my favorite part of the chapter too(: I felt like there needed to be a little lightness in it. I'm glad you liked it!
