Laurie Halse Anderson was a preacher's daughter and a runner, so Kate Malone may start out as a bit of a reflection of herself. Hopefully, though, the likeness stops there.

When we meet Kate, she is actually kind of hard to place your finger on. She is so multi-dimensional and she even talks about having a good and a bad side that fight inside of her. But as things in her life start to become less routine and other parts of her life begin to crumble, you actually see Kate start to figure herself out. It does take a couple tragedies (one that flips everyone's world upside down), but Kate gets there.

I will say, much like Anderson's other books I've read, Catalyst becomes more and more extreme and emotional as you read it.
