Explanation for answer and quote from text

After Sam died, Kate Barlow took revenge on the sheriff by killing him and giving him a kiss. That was the beginning of a murdering, robbing, and leading a gang for a while until finally she died at the teeth of a yellow spotted lizard,

"Still want that kiss?" she said as she shot the sheriff. (Sachar, Lewis:1998)

Conclusion and Opinion

Kate Barlow definitely changed. She went from kind, to murderous. Caring, to robbing, and complementary to a leader of a gang.

My opinion is that Kate Barlow is still in the there, just that the loss and grief of Sam overcomes it.
