spoilers (and I haven't even read the thing)

My 15 yr old daughter has been lost at Hogwarts for the last 2 days. I came home from having dinner with a friend at about 8 and saw that she was pretty close to the end. No one had died but she told me Mr. Weasly almost went down.

I came upstairs for about an hour and then went back down to check on her progress. I walked over to the couch and she looked up at me with big, teary eyes and said, "Sirius died - I cried really hard."

I had to ask who Sirius was as I didn't know. She explained that he was Harry's Godfather and then continued with,
"I liked him. Harry liked him. He was going to go live with him. It was just too sad."

So maybe it's no big deal for some people but for her it was pretty traumatic. I offered my sympathies and told her I was really sorry that it upset her so much. Then I said, "At least it wasn't Hagrid - a lot of people thought it would be Hagrid". She took some comfort in that.
