Eva Clark is normal, despite the fact she wishes very badly for her life to become interesting. All she can do is move through life day after day as quietly as possible, hoping that some day someone will come and save her from her dreary existance. One day, her older sister Cassidy shows up in town and changes everything about Eva's life, but it's not how she expected it to go.

Cassidy the Intelligent One
"Eva!" Mom called from the kitchen, where she was once again working on a meal. She really likes to cook, and she's good, too, so you can usually find her in the kitchen. She has a small bakery in town, but it isn't open on the weekends.
"Coming, Mom!" I replied as I started down the stairs, my black hair swinging behind me.
I went to the door, and opened it. To my surprise, the two people on our front steps were the ones from the coffee shop.
"Oh! It's you again!" I said. "Well, hi!"
"Ah, so you are Eva." Said the guy who was, apparently, my brother. "I am Aaron, and this is Cassidy."
The red head from before blinked. "Hello, Eva."
"Come in! My mom is in the kitchen. Dinner will be ready in a bit." I told them. Hey, I may be anti-social, but I still have manners.
They followed me into the living room, and settled on the couch.My dad came in and introduced himself. The two of them seemed fairly comfortable. They talked to my dad like they knew each other. Well, Aaron did. Cassidy sat quietly, holding a book in her lap.
"What are you reading?" I asked.
Cassidy held the cover up to show me.
"Jane Eyre." I read, looking over the cover. "Oh, yeah. I read that last year for a book report."
"I see. I have read it numerous times." Cassidy replied as my dad and Aaron continued their conversation.
"It's that good?" I asked.
"On the contrary. I find the topic slightly overused." Cassidy told me, setting the book back on her lap. "I also feel that some parts are dragged out for a longer time than necessary."
"Oh. Why are you reading it again then?" I asked, confused.
"Human emotions change constantly. My opinion of the book could become different eventually." Cassidy said.
"I see." I said, not exactly lying. This girl was confusing, but something about her was clear. She was very smart.
"Hello, everyone!" Mom said as she came into the room. "I see you're getting settled."
"Yes, we are. Thank you." Aaron told her.
"Eva, why don't you show Cassidy the house? We'll see what she thinks." Mom told me. "We have a room upstairs you can use. The one next to Eva's."
"Okay, Mom." I turned to Cassidy. "What do you say? Want to see the house?"
"That sounds good." Cassidy said, and stood to follow me upstairs. I showed her where the bathroom was, my room, the library, my parents room and separate bathroom. Then, we came to the guest room next to my room.
"This is the one that will be yours if you choose to stay here." I said. "You could probably change it around if we asked. And we have more sheets for the bed in the closet if you don't like these."
She was examining the curtains, which were purple.
"This is good, thank you." Cassidy said.
"How old are you?" I asked as she opened the doors of the dressers.
"Seventeen." She replied, sitting on the bed.
"So you're almost out of high school." I said.
"I graduated a while ago. I was certified as a genius at age ten." She said.
"Wow!" I grinned. "And I thought I was smart."
Cassidy smiled slightly. "Thank you. Most adults do not recognize me as their equals, so I have not been able to acquire a job thus far."
"You seem smarter than most of the adults I know. I think you might be more than their equal." I told her.
"I would go as far as to agree with you." She replied.
