There’s a tendency to want to be merciful to your characters, but young readers don’t want that. They want to experience extremes, so that’s what we tap into. These aren’t your children, they are your protagonists, and they have to suffer.
girls don’t want boyfriends girls want a seven book series about the marauders’ life at hogwarts

James could see his mother moving like an anxious pale star among the guests in her lilac dress, greeting each of them warmly, welcoming them to her home. She had not glamoured herself to look her husband’s age for the evening, and she appeared enormously young, though her hair was done up like a gracious older woman’s, not a girl’s. When Will materialized out of the crowd and came to put his arm around Tessa, smiling down at her, the gray at his temples flashed like silver. James looked away; he loved his parents for being extraordinary, but sometimes he also hated them for the same thing.
