For those who have read "The Half-Blood Prince" or have family members who are reading it, the outcome for many is intense grief.  While some might say this is "only" a character in a book, a strong bond has been formed.  This is an opportunity to deal with grief in a caring and supportive way.  It may be helpful for parents to be aware of the potential for this reaction for their children or others.
