I liked the imagery in this essay "along the popping rocks" "a cartwheel of feathers", though it still ended up being pretty lame. Not sure, but I'm guessing sparkly eyes was trying to get in her pants because her older sister has a reputation of loose values. She seems to have a negative opinion of her sister throughout most of the essay, but in the end when the boy crosses the line, she reverts back to family protection mode. She then realizes she doesn't love her sister enough, in the last line of the essay. Corny. I appreciate the situation for being a wake up call but it was so short it didn't hold my attention for long enough and it was too much of a downer to have such an uplifting family oriented message.
