How can 'the best witch of her age' help us live more empowered lives? Isn't she, as Snape puts it, just 'an insufferable know-it all'?
Yes she is. Of course she is. But Hermione is so much more than that. It is she, not Harry or Ron, who punches Draco in year 3. It is she who masterminds Dumbledore's army when Harry is a bit too consumed by rage to organise anything.
By comparing Hermione to Percy Weasley, we see her in a new light, and understand the lessons she has to teach us about the necessity of rebellion to our own inner conformity that forbids us to make the courageous, soul-saving changes that we need to.
