By: Cynthia Rylant

If you were in attracted to someone would you tell them or wait for them to say something.In the story "Checkouts" everything goes downhill when a girl moves to Cincinnati with her parents. The girl had red hair and she was simple yet beautiful. The boy was attractive but he was a flat character because, he didn't change throughout the story. A girl moved to Cincinnati with her family and when she got there she was lonely and went into a reverie about going back to her hometown. One day her parents asked her to go grocery shopping. When she got there she noticed a bag boy and was attracted to him so she started "checking him out". When it was time for her to pay for her groceries she went into the bag boy's checkout line, the bag boy was so nervous because of her beauty he dropped he mayo on the floor. The girl went back to the store to see the guy again but this time she didn't go through his line. I wonder why she didn't go through his line , read the story to find out what happens in the end.
