  My friends think I'm too old to like Harry

Sarah agrees with Press Packer Emma about the pressure of admitting to be a Potter fan.

But she says that you shouldn't be afraid of what others think.

"I agree with Emma!

I also feel under pressure to not talk about Harry Potter (at school) because I get embarrassed when people say it's sad, as I am 13 years old.

Shouldn't be scared

When I first got my Harry Potter pencil case, I didn't take it out of my school bag when I was at my lessons because I thought people were going to say stuff about it.

But then I realised that I'm allowed to like anything I want, and I shouldn't be scared by what others think.

Too old

All of my friends think I'm too old to like Harry Potter and they say it's a bit far-fetched that I have spent over 151 (I am HUGE fan!) on Harry Potter stuff, but that's not fair.

Harry Potter is for everyone, not only kids, that's why adults read it too.

So nobody should feel scared to tell people what they like, because no one can say that what you like is sad!"

Sarah, 13, Essex
