Potter and the Goblet of Fire_. She's a firecracker, she is. She was at
Gryffindor herself as a student, so that means she's brave. I like the way
she's so protective of her own children but is also watching out for Harry.
She's the only adult to show him any love. She pointedly embraces him in
front of his uncle. She's a good wife and mother -- and being mother to
Fred and George can't be easy! She manages on a very tight budget. She's a
very thoughtful person who shares the little she has with others (inviting
Harry and Hermione to spend the end of summer with them).
