How does the narrator’s attitude change over the course of the summer?
The narrator’s attitude changes toward his grandfather over
the course of the summer from being ungrateful to
appreciative of his family.
He says, “I hate having to take care of Grandpa” at the beginning. When summer is over he writes in his journal, “Grandpa used to be a basketball star! That’s so cool that he can teach me!”
This demonstrates the narrator’s attitude change as he learns
new aspects of his grandfather’s life. By the end of the
summer, the narrator realizes that his grandfather is not just
a burden; he actually has the ability to affect the narrator’s
life in a positive way.
