This is the book that started it all.

56.0% "Before the Troll incident on Halloween, Hermione is sitting and crying in the girl's bathroom bc she is upset. This makes sense if you go to regular school and want to get away and be alone. It doesn't make much sense when you're boarding school and you could just go to your bedroom to be alone and cry..." 2 comments

(I guess I should also be concerned that detention is late at night but really I'm more worried about Hermione's sanity. Homegirl needs some therapy)"
