Although Susie was shocked and perhaps even had a glimpse of happiness for her sister because she was in love; Susie also got consumed by jealousy. A quote by Susie states. This is a very powerful quote as it shows us that Susie wishes her first sexual encounter could have been a loving and consensual experience. Seeing her sister sexually interact with a boy she loves made Susie realise the bold contrast between what Mr Harvey had done to her and what Samuel and Lindsey had done to each other and with each other. Knowing that they are both sex but also knowing that they can only relate to one another on a very basic level.
