Life was complicated for Eleanor Ross the moment she was born to a workaholic mother. Left in the care of a babysitter the majority of her childhood, the girl learned to busy herself with a hobby of knitting before making a couple of friends.

 With her father nowhere in the picture as she grows older and  symptoms of a disease appearing, Eleanor seems lost in a household where her mother, Maggie, is constantly nagging her to seek help.  Fed up with the constant fighting that has further distance her from her mother, Eleanor agrees to start attending a support group to meet others that share her pain and much more. 

Attending the first support meeting, Eleanor doesn't bother to say much as she shyly knits away in her seat, listening to the other stories of the others attending.  However, she catches the eye of a couple of the attendees with her rapid nervous knitting.

 Among them, is Fred Badgely who is attending the meeting with his brother as emotional support. He notices Eleanor right away as she seems set on keeping to herself but he's sure she has a story. 

 Now all he wants to do is figure out what she's trying so hard to hide.

                              It wasn't your father's fault... He didn't know about you until you grew older... until he taught you and realized who you resembled... When you ripened out to be a witch

After reading the comments I feel weird now because I love being in the dark (in good circumstances) because it gives me the feeling of peace 😂

Is this part of the Tightly Knit Harry Potter series? I am so confused. Please help me!

Why would a twelve year old need a babysitter. God, Eleanor's mother is quite..something

I haven't read the HP version before this, so if I'm confused about a reference of some sort, I hope you can forgive me

I'm so confused rn. How does everyone know/saying queenie(from fantastic beasts?) and I'm just like, okay, so they must be new characters in the book. Like is there a book I'm supposed to read before this? Or is this the first one
