Vanilla has complete parents, has a twin named Vanessa and has a brother named Zero. But she does not live with them, she lives with her adoptive parents and also her adopted brother for some reason.
In the midst of her happiness with Dava, there are many problems faced by Vanilla, ranging from love problems, family problems, health problems and also problems from the past that are at the root of other problems.
I highly recommend this novel. The writer presents the story well. Every scene that makes the reader feel what the writer tells. Words that are easy to understand so they are suitable for teenagers to read. There are also many moral messages conveyed by the author. However, there are a number of things that bother me when I’m absorbed in following the flow. First, there are still some scattered typos. Incorrect punctuation, and I found some sentences also that did not match, and that disturbs my mood a little reading. But I understand, the writer is also an ordinary person who has mistakes. Second, the path is a bit long-winded. So that conflict resolution feels very slow.
