"It was at moments like this that Ellie felt like a proper grown-up, though most proper grown-ups probably didn't have to remind themselves they were proper grown-ups." Story of my life.

"...everyone else in the van knew that only Voldemort and Ellie's dad were the two names that you never, ever mentioned."

Ellie being criticised for being too straight and uptight and stressing out about everything reminds me of the parts of myself I think other people criticise, too. Way too close to home. Ouch.
