The darkness out there - Character description - Kerry

Extracts from this document...


'The darkness out there' Character description: Kerry Kerry is a young boy who goes to the Good neighbours club. Kerry joined the Good Neighbours club because he wanted to help the old people who lived alone. Sandra doesn't like Kerry at all; she thinks he is dirty and very good looking. We only get this impression through Sandra's eyes: the writer reveals Sandra's thoughts as she meets him on the way to Mrs Rutter's 'Kerry Stevens that none of her lot reckoned much on, with his blacked licked-down hair and slitty eyes!'

I would like to make friends would Kerry because he is a mature and sensitive boy. I agree with Kerry through-out the story. At the end of the story Sandra thinks that he is a sensitive boy who realised Mrs Rutter was before she did. Salma Kauser 11s ...read more.
