My Favourite Quotes
“…I suppose that’s why they went for Gran.”
“They what?” said Harry, Ron and Hermione together.
“Yeah,” said Neville, panting a little now, because the passage was climbing so steeply, “well, you can see their thinking. it has worked really well, kidnapping kids to force their relatives to behave, I s’pose it was only a matter of time before they did it the other way round.

Little old witch living alone, they probably thought they didn’t need to sent anyone particularly powerful. Anyway,” Neville laughed, “Dawlish is still in St Mungo’s and Gran’s on the run.”
