When a teenager inherits her grandmother's jewelry, her stepsister demands a share. Despite her family's pressure, she refuses to give in, causing tension and resentment. The situation escalates when her stepsister searches her room for the jewelry, and she decides to keep it at her dad's house. Her mom thinks it's unfair not to share with her stepsister, but she argues that sentimentality should trump family ties. Now, she's asking Reddit: is she the a**hole for not sharing the jewelry with her stepsister?

The mother still insists that the girl should share the jewelry with her stepsister, but the girl stands firm in her decision. What would you do in this situation?
