Summary: Jeffery Potter always had sensed he was somehow different from his playmates, and at eight years old he found out how different when he overhead his father, Pontius, tell Jeffery’s mother, Portia, “Our boy doesn’t have a magical bone in his body. He’s a Squib.”
This was a blow to his parents for two reasons. The first was they were both the only children in a long lines of highly respected magical families, and the second was Jeffery had not been born until his mother was thirty-two years old and his father forty.
To his parent great surprise and greater joy, Portia became pregnant at forty-one. His brother, James, was born about two months after Jeffery’s tenth birthday. From an early age it was evident that James had inherited his parents’ magical talent.
Since James’ birth their mother was frequently bedridden, Jeffery had to tend to his baby brother’s needs quite often and James came to rely on Jeffery. As for Jeffery, all his friends had gone off to school at Hogwarts and he would have very lonely without James. The boys became almost inseparable.
Ever since his seventeenth birthday Jeffery had been feeling that there was no future for him in Godric’s Hollow. James could now take care of himself and be helpful to their mother. Jeffery felt if he stayed any longer he would be destined to the menial life of a Squib. It was time to move on. The question was where and how.
The finding of Jeffery’s journal thirty-five years later will lead Harry Potter on a journey to discover his roots and also something about himself.
