Well, the book is just as good as I remember it. As you can see, I took some notes* on the differences from the movie so I can remember it is not the same. I heard from someone Halloween might be an important date, so I took note of that. I was wondering if maybe the green flash of light Harry keeps remember has anything to do with his and Lily’s green eyes.

So what about the names Lily and Petunia. Lily means perfection, so what does Petunia mean? Evil, bitterness, what? {2016 EDIT: Petunia means resentment, anger.}
