How is Pip's sister a jerk with a heart of gold? She barely tolerates Pip and is physically and emotionally abusive to both Pip and Joe. Joe is too soft-hearted from his own trauma growing up to rein her in so she runs roughshod over the both of them. I don't know where this heart of gold thing is coming from. She even makes Pip feel guilty about his own existence and there doesn't seem to show a bit of warmth to her brother. I feel is just a jerk rather than a jerk with a heart of gold.
