The teacher said we had to include quotes from the story, so I included them and describes Katherine in every way I could. I describes her being ambarrased, selfish, etc. I don't know what else to add, could you please offer some help, thanks.




In the course of time individuals begins to comprehend the significance of their dear ones in their lives. Katherine, the protagonist of “All is calm”, by Ann Walsh, is a dynamic character. Through time she begins to understand about her grandma’s situation and realize the grandma’s importance in her life. Katherine goes through a variety of different emotions during the story. She develops an understanding about life and learns from her mistakes.

At the beginning of the story; Katherine feels as if she has a burden laid on herself when she is asked to take her grandma to the doctor’s. She is being selfish at that moment and thinks it’s a waste of time. She is unsure of how to react when her grandma walks out of her senses and starts “singing Christmas carols” in the bus. Katherine feels embarrassed. Katherine is unable to recognize the state her grandma is in. She feels uncomfortable when her grandma “[clutches] at [her] hand.” Katherine tries to “untangle [that] hand” from her grandma. She finds it really annoying when her grandma acts like a toddler; Katherine becomes impatient.

As Katherine’s grandma comes back to her senses and starts acting ‘real’, Katherine feels depressed. She feels her grandma’s love for her and distinguishes the disease taking it away. Katherine’s grandma “[is] back”, and Katherine “want’[s]to cry.” Moreover, Katherine receives help from Kevin, whom she recalls to be a stranger because of his typical strange behaviour in school, but soon she realizes her misjudgement. Katherine feels content to know Kevin’s real identity. Katherine feels thankful to Kevin, because he helps take her grandma out of the bus. She underestimates him at first, and later on realizes her fault. She “remembers how patient and good [he] was with her grandmother.” Katherine washes away all the gloomy emotions she had during the beginning when she was unable to understand anything and ends up with bright ones at the conclusion. Katherine “[gives] her [grandma] a hug”. She says “I love you Gran, I’ll always love you.”

These changes came about in Katherine when she started to feel her grandma’s love; Katherine notices the gentleness of her grandma and the affection. This happens when Katherine’s grandma starts talking about making tea and rolls for Katherine. Kevin is also successful in causing a sufficient influence on Katherine and making her become more patient. She becomes aware of her mistakes and feels sorry for everything. She feels sorry that she had misjudged Kevin, and that she couldn’t realize the things she should have before. Thus, each individual should possess the capability to realize the importance of one’s loved one’s in one’s lives.
