Gioia’s Rec:
It’s no surprise that Arabella’s characterizations are so brilliantly on-target, as she is well-known in this fandom for her fantastic writing skills.   This story is  a delightful reminder of how awkward and embarrassing those teen years can be, particularly for a clueless boy and nervous girl going on their first date.  The POV alternates between Hermione and Ron, with distinctive, in-character voices each time.  There’s a hint of early Harry/Ginny romance in the air, but the focus is on Hermione and Ron and what it means to be them.  The story is AU now, as it was written pre-OotP.
