* DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch: The word "Bugger" is uttered often in the book. Apparently Stouffer was not aware that it's a very offensive word in both British and Australian English.

Added DiffLines:

** The Nevils and Zyn gorge themselves with the food stolen by the Muggles after seven years of eating nothing but seaweed and meager grass. Suddend and copious eating in such condition would have been devastating on their already frail health.

** How allergies are represented in this book. One can't simply pass out after having an allergy: in most cases, there would be cutaneous eructions, rashes and severe irritations. The worst that could happen are asthma or respiratory problems that could lead to lacks of oxygen and therefore fainting. This means that, even if Zyn didn't intend to kill Rah, provoking an allergy on him so that he has no air and faints, would mean giving him a slow and painful death.

* EvilRedhead: Zyn. Altough not exactly "evil" per se, the author perpetuates this stereotype.

* AndThatsTerrible: Stouffer will repeatedly shove to the reader's face the fact that Zyn is evil, either via the Muggles (including ''her adoptive mother'') or via herself as the narrator.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: This book has a very bad example of this trope: the Muggles are supposed to be named in a ceremony because of a particular sign or a behavior that shows in its infancy. However, some of the names don't make sense (Rah and Zyn, Yur and Golda, Peter, Patch...), some inexpicably match for loving couples (Pitter and Patter, Pick and Pluck), and some lead to UnfortunateImplication, for example Boggs, which is implied to smell bad and be covered in mud ''since birth''.

* DisproportionateReward: Rah wins at a croquet game, and the Muggles treat him as a god just for doing it, even rewarding him with an old and valuable medal.
