Billie Jo becomes jealous of her younger sister, who hasn't really yet figured out that she's no longer a little girl, a fact pointed out to her by her mother.

Neither Billie Jo or Betty Jo achieve what they want. Betty Jo in particular feels let down as she wanted to feel like a threat to Billie Jo, while Steve still sees her solely as a grease monkey tomboy.
