Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Laney Becks: World Class Pessimist

Whatever the reason — no sun, having an ugly face, a diabolical great aunt that smells like musty yarn — I really just am a mean person.

2 Not Such a Perfect Prefect After All

I stand up, pull down my trunk and cat carrier, and move towards the door. For a moment, Albus looks at me, and then he slides aside to let me through.

I'm halfway down the corridor when I hear, "Laney?"

I turn around to find Albus poking his head out his compartment, looking at me.

3 Poison Ivy

The girl is slender, average height, with deep brown eyes, and the wildest, most flawlessly curly brown hair I’ve ever laid eyes on. She is scowling at the boy, who is evidently holding a map of Hogwarts upside down, but when she sees Al, her eyes come alive. She has the air of a lioness, closing in on her prey.

I know almost instantly that I hate everything about her.

4 Mistakes

I simply slide to the ground, look up at Lily, my rescuer, and try to shut down.

I am a horrible person.

5 Consequences of Grandeur

I wish all my problems would melt away.

But then I’d be like a giant mass of nothingness. I’m made of problems...and odorless air.

6 Coping

I cough. Okay, so maybe I hadn’t taken just one class off. But what’s one day? It’s only O.W.L. year.

7 Mending of a Mess

“What the - Fred! What were you doing?” I snap furiously. “You woke me up!”

“Oh, I’m so sorry!” he says sarcastically, leaning on an armchair for support.

“Apology not accepted,” I say after a moment, “I think you broke my face.”

8 A Lovely Feeling

I nod. “Right then. I’ll put in a good word for you.”

He grins at me.

Have I just made a new friend?

Holy potatoes, I think I have.

9 Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Puff

“DON’T TELL ME TO CALM DOWN!” she roars, red sparks shooting out the end of her wand. 

Out of nowhere it seems, Al is behind her, his wand at her throat. “Touch her and I’ll put you in St. Mungo’s,” he says dangerously.

10 A Very Ginger Holiday


"Never mind! Never mind!" I squeal in horror.

11 Right Place, Right Time

I curse Fred under my breath. The chances I’ll get another opportunity like that are slim, and I feel like tying Fred to the Womping Willow and just leaving him there to die wouldn’t even make me feel better.

12 Up to My Old Tricks

But damn. How can you say no to those adorable green eyes?

I gag at this thought.

Merlin, I’ve gone soft!

13 Snap Decision

“You’re stark, raving mad, Laney Becks,” he says, pulling me closer to him.

14 Truth or Spork

He laughs gently, and I must say, he looks convinced. Huh, maybe I do have some wisdom after all.
And now I am craving pickles.

15 Give Me a Break

“You sure you’re okay with this?” Al asks me after a while. “I mean, getting involved with James’ love-life probably won’t end well.”

I pat his cheek. “Al, since when does anything end well these days? We’ll be fine.”

16 Secret Agents

“HOW LONG?” she roars. I nearly go deaf.

The pain from my ankle is worsening and the sound of her ferocity brings me to dry heave.

Carter says, “Rose, we have to leave—”

17 Escape Plan

Smitty looks close madness. “If I’m still alive by the end of your stay then I deserve a serious raise!” She huffs and, after a moment, she conjures a goblet and shoves it down my throat. “Sleeping Draught!” she shrieks, disappearing from behind the curtains.
