I am currently 18 years old and I live in the U.S.
Some of my favorite authors are J.K. Rowling (of course), Eoin Colfer, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, Rick Riordan, Eva Ibbotson and countless others I'm forgetting right now.

Hufflepuff Albus Potter was a firm believer that it was a fact of nature and a rite of passage to torment one's sibling. And who better than his nerdy, Ravenclaw little sister? Her messy hair and stupid pile of books... she so had it coming.
