No normal and sane parent in their right mind would name their only children Vermillion and Cinnamon. Except Mr and Mrs Locket were not normal. They were certainly sane and in their right minds as they named their oldest daughter Vermillion when she was born, and equally so a year later as they filled out Cinnamon’s birth papers.

All her life Cinna has harboured a faint animosity toward her name. Verma’s name is a pretty and vibrant red colour, and hers is a common spice used in cooking. Vermillion even suits her older sister perfectly; she is the unique one and the centre of attention everywhere. Whereas Cinnamon is downright strange, a social hermit, draws weird stares from others whenever she introduces herself, and is always associated with Vermillion Locket despite her desire not to be.

And because of all this, Cinna has not let anyone into her heart for years.

Moving from Melbourne in Australia to Oregon in America is the biggest change to occur in Cinna’s life. Maybe now she will be able to create an individual persona from Verma because of starting again in a new place?

I wasn't sure how this story would turn out when I first began and I'm still not sure since it's ongoing right now, but I want it to be a story that'd make a BAM! impact in people's minds. It's kind of boring in my opinion, but there's not much I can do at the moment. It may become more interesting later--at least I hope it does!

Are the characters developed enough so far? Does the plot seem, er, monotonous? Please leave some kind of review!
