Story Summary: The Autobiography of Ginny Weasley. Her point of view from book one to book seven and beyond, complete with missing moments and everything.

Gioia’s Rec:
The entire Harry Potter series is told through Ginny’s POV in this thoughtful response to many of the unresolved questions from the series.  I enjoyed seeing the creative way the author had of addressing these questions (E.g., Why did George and Fred decide to give Harry the Marauder’s Map? How did Ginny and Hermione round up so many people to join the DA?), as the perspective of a curious, alert and crushing young girl allows us to see a lot of details that Harry’s often oblivious POV grossly neglected. The portion of this fic that covers Harry’s 7th year was particularly good, as we find out what was going on at Hogwarts while Snape and the Carrows were running the school and Dumbledore’s Army was “still recruiting.”  (That canon line still gives me chills!) Ginny’s character is fleshed out beautifully in this story, allowing the reader to understand her far better than the books had time to permit.

I’d also like to commend the author for making a point of acknowledging the authors of similar fics.  It was a gracious touch which must have taken some time to assemble in order to recognize the influence that numerous other authors had upon this particular story.
