She's the one on the left.
Holly Hart is the daughter of a newly successful thriller writer who moves in next door to the Crumrins. She's fashionably gothy, but this doesn't fly in Hillsborough.
Despite this unpromising beginning, Holly turns out to be one of the few civilians Courtney's met who is okay with magic and they hit it off. Soon, Holly's more than okay with the idea of magic, and wants to learn some herself. Courtney is happy about this, but Holly's choice of first spell is the "make myself popular" one that gave Courtney trouble before.
Meanwhile, Uncle Aloysius is facing his own impending mortality, and deciding against using extreme magical methods to prevent death.
The homework thing is a callback to a story where Courtney learned that lesson the hard way.
And then on a visit to Goblin Town, everything goes south....
