Very lovely, touching story. Quite realistic (though now AU of course). I really wish HBP had been more like this, but I guess this would be a bit much for a "kids' book". Wonderful job!!
That was very moving and an accurate portrail of how we greive. I am very impressed.
SInce I like to be helpful in my reviews, my only suggestion would be explaining more fully how Ginny understands what Harry is feeling in the begining... sometimes we can assume but saying something like "I've felt that way, my first year from the diary" or something else might help the readers more.
I do hope that we continue to see more writing from you. :-)
