Cinnamon Cinnamon is a unique person that has a mind of her own, she wears and does what she wants, not by what people are going along with, but what her taste is. She loves her mother so much to that point were they felt like if they were sisters, "We were like sister, truly. I was the sister she always wanted and her daughter and best friend forever and ever". Cinnamon wasn't that close with her father like it used to be, now that they both had tell each other the truth of what has happen, they feel more closer than it was. Grandmother Beverly and her were never that close and they don't get along at all, they are always arguing, and things has never been the same ever she has moved in.
Eight years ago, her mother and father had a miscarriage and they seemed on giving up on having another child.
Six months ago, her mother announce at dinner that she was pregnant, grandmother was not happy and she started saying that she was too old to have another baby and how are you going to take care of it. The things that Grandmother Beverly said had made her suffered a miscarriage and she was rushed to the hospital. She lost the baby.
When Cinnamon was at school, she was sent to the principal office. She really didn't knew what was going on, everyone keep looking at her like if she has done something wrong. She looked at Clarence, they are best friends and they could trust and communicate with each other, he put a face saying that everything was going to be all right and tell me what happens. When she went into the principal office she saw her grandmother and she wonder what she was doing here. Her grandmother sings her out. On the way home she ask her what was going on and she didn't respond till the third time. Grandmother had just told her that she found her mother humming, watering the plant naked with red lipstick picture of a baby in her stomach.
When they got home, Cinnamon went to get her mother, she looked everywhere till she went to her room and found her folding and unfolding the same blanket that was at her side. All suddenly the mother feels pain and she thinks she's thinks that she's about to give birth. They call the doctor and they said that they were going to put her in a mental ward. Cinnamon tried to reach her father but she couldn't reach him nor could she.
When cinnamon ask her father he kept making excuses and tried to change the subject. Since the mother is at the clinic, grandmother is trying to take advantage on changing the house the way she wants it to be.
"People act like if the don't want anything to do with you, but as soon as they can learned something about you, they seized it and then they take great pleasure in spreading the news, especially if its bad news." The students at school had found out what has happen to cinnamon mom and they are spreading the news around and making bad comments. That afternoon Cinnamon went to see her mother and at the reception counter she had to say who she was, so she said that she was her youngest sister that came from Las Angeles.
Cinnamon can't sleep at nights because she has all these questions on her mind about her father. Then she decides to spy on him and Clarence went with her. Cinnamon found her father with another woman. She thought that he thought since I was at school, mother was at the clinic, and that grandmother was at home that no one would suspect him. She dig a hole big enough and she put the charm necklace that he gave her in her sixteen birthday and it felt like if she was burring him.
All the good memories about her fathers change, now she sees him different. When the father told her were she was, she wanted to tell the truth badly, but she couldn't. When she went at school people started asking Clarence how it was because they thought that they were in a relationship. When Clarence went to her house for the spirits, the spirits went inside of them, and then they made love. The grandmother catches them and she was going to tell her father till Cinnamon said "which ones worse minds or his?" Cinnamon is scared that something might happen to Clarence. Her mother thinks that the grandmother was right about the baby. The mother is getting better and has a plan to kick out grandmother. Clarence father is angry because of what happen and his sending him to Brook Academic School. There are bad rumors going on about cinnamon because of Clarence living. Cinnamon has got the part that Iris wanted to be on and now she is planing to make her life miserable. When dell is trying to tell Cinnamon to watch out for Iris, she said that Shakespeare was right "The world was a stage, and all of us merely players." The mother came home and they started putting everything back the way it was. On the weekends Cinnamon would go to Miss. Hamilton houses to rehearsal for the schools play. When she was rehearsal with Miss. Hamilton she told her "think of him only as charming, handsome man, so when you reveal the truth the audience would be shock" she told her that for then she would do good. Iris really wanted revenge so she took a picture of Miss. Hamilton and her inches close that looked like if they were about to kiss. She put that picture in front of everyone to see and it said "teachers per or something more!" At lunch Cinnamon meet the people of the play in a table and they were telling each other that everything was going to be all right. After the play everyone was congratulating Cinnamon for doing just a great job. Behind the stage Miss. Hamilton was with an old friend that was an agent name Edmond Senetsky. His mother owns the only place of collage that is about doing drama and she was set to have an appointment to go to that school. When she went it was dark and no one was there, except her. She sent a letter to cinnamon house saying that she was accepted.
