I have decided to attend a book launch of a prolific author of Muggle literature, Jim Jones. He has more than 100 written books to his name and has just launched a first book in a series, titled Broken Dreams.
Blurb: Maria Isabelle, who just turned fifteen, is as Ordinary as one could be. She has two loving parents who adore her, a younger sister who is constantly competing with her, and a Golden Retriever called Spot who obeys her every command. However, in Maria's world, being an Ordinary is not appreciated. Everybody has at least one superpower and better the power, better your chances to advance in society, regardless of your background. Sick of being bullied for no abilities, Maria decides to fight for her and other Ordinary rights, no matter what it takes.
Jones' book launch had a very intimate feel to it what with dimmed lights and a smaller number of attendees. He took some questions from the guests and outlined where this particular book series is going, confirming that we will get at least three books, if not more. Jones said that he got the idea behind the book from his own experiences in the wizarding world as a Squib. He had no magical ability in the world where that matters significantly. He was also bullied by strangers and family alike, before he decided to take his life back and moved to a major city, where almost no one knows him. Besides being an author, Jim Jones is also a fighter for Squib and Muggleborn rights in his wizarding community.
