I think Jacey being Steve’s younger sister, its giving him a change to take care of someone as if it was his own kid. Jacey also looks up to Steve I think so that would make it a little easier for him to take care of her. I think Jacey will impact Steve on becoming a better person because now Steve has to put into consideration that what he does will not only affect his brother and dad, but now his sister and mom too. Family is definitely the central theme of this novel because family is what brought Steve home and also is what took care of Beau when he found out he had Leukemia. Family is what is bringing the old Garrett’s back as one big happy family again.
