I've always been the same age as Harry. We've grown up together.
In the next five months, I will turn 22 and graduate from college and move eight hours from home. And I'll watch the last HP movie—the final installment in the seven-book, eight-movie story that has unfolded alongside my own life.
And I think I feel the same way about the movie that I do about growing up.
Excited, yes, but also sad.
