Review:Peeves says:
Poor Amy. There is nothing worse than having to make new friends (especially if your shy) and with the whole boarding school system it would make things all the more worse. I'm a really shy person who finds it very hard to make new friends so I can really feel for her.

You've written this very; I can feel all of Amy's anger and frustration towards her parents and wish they'd take off their rose coloured glasses.
I've read the first of your Albus Potter series (I'll get round to reading the rest soon hopefully) and I really like Matt but in this I cant help but be a little irritated at him. (That's a compliment as to how well you've made the reader sympathize with Amy.)

Just one thing. In the first chapter Amy is celebrating because she gets a whole month off school. She has just finished her third year and is due to start her fourth. Hogwarts gets 2 months holidays once they finish a year (end of June to the start of September) So shouldn't Amy have two months as well instead of just the one? If so she should have finished school at the end of November and is due to go back at the start of February. (Not January)

Very well done. Looking forward reading more : )

Author's Response: Nope, nothing worse than that. And Amy is pretty shy, especially at this point. I'm shy, too, so that's probably why I had an easy time writing that.

I'm glad you like it so far! Amy's parents are definitely wearing rose colored glasses and they'll need to take them off if they want to fix their relationship with Amy. Aw, thanks! You're supposed to be a bit irritated with Matt, despite the fact that this isn't his fault. It's all on their parents.

Hogwarts gets two months off because it's based off of the UK school system. That's how boarding schools work in the UK, so that's how Hogwarts is. But all of my research on Australia taught me that they do things different and their school years start at the end of January (because the seasons are flipped, of course) and they have their breaks more spread out throughout the year. A few schools in the United States do that, too (except they start in August or September.) Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
