Hi!

I thought this was really sweet, and quite useful at the same time. You set a tone for Jenny's relationship with James and you helped to define the age difference between the two of them. I thought Jenny was just about perfect for an 11-year-old. The things that concern her, the way that she reacts to the news that she'll be having a younger sibling and finally her anxiety at leaving to go to Hogwarts all fit the picture nicely. I love how she managed to get so attached to little James in a relatively short amount of time. The idea that she would carry him around Hogwarts in her bag was hilarious!

Jenny nodded, still staring at them with huge eyes. "What do you want a baby for?" she finally blurted. -- This! The perfect 11-year-old reaction to the news. "Aren't I enough for you?" You can almost hear the thought behind the question.

The scene on the train platform was one of those things that, as a parent, was sweet and funny and a little bit heart-breaking. My kids had their first day of kindergarten a few weeks ago. Thankfully, the teachers met us in the school lobby and sort of whisked the kids away to their classrooms before anyone -- child or parent -- really knew what was happening.

There's really not much more to say. Nice job and I look forward to seeing more glimpses into the events leading up to your awesome new story!

Author's Response: Hi! You found this! Cool. You're the only one so far. :)

I'm glad you thought it was sweet and useful and not sappy and corny. I just have a whole bunch of these scenes written, that are just kind of like snapshots, that give background to Sadie's story. But I don't want to post them and spoil surprises. So this was my solution.

Writing Jenny was fun. I figured I couldn't just GIVE James Potter a sister and not at least provide readers with a little insight into her. And I thought it was much more believable that he would have a sister much older than him than one very close in age. It changed less canon things that way.

:) That was my favorite line writing this part, so glad you enjoyed it!

Kids grow up, don't they. Aren't you glad you didn't have to put yours on a train to go to boarding school? (Or, maybe you secretly wish you could, hehehehe.)

You think my story is awesome? Wow. Thanks! And thanks so much for reading this little one as well. Keep an eye on it. I'll update it once info becomes...for lack of a better term, declassified. hehehe
