When I first embarked on Harry Potter: The Grand Reunion, I didn’t realize that I was about to make my biggest life decision to date. In retrospect, it’s all coming together.
HP: TGR is split into two parts. Part 1 includes Books 1 through 4, which are full of wonder and exploration of the wizarding world. Part 2 will include Books 5 through 7, which, collectively, have a totally different tone from the first four books. Books 5, 6, and 7 are all character building, transformative years in which Harry matured.
I was about to go on my annual trip to Manila when I first started HP: TGR. As I wrap up HP: TGR, I embark on a new adventure back to a familiar place—after 6.5 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m moving back to Manila.
So let’s finish this grand reunion—with Harry through and through.
