Claudia is a character that continues to grow and expand throughout the book. It is my belief, that most of this novel is a characterization sketch of Claudia, something used to get similar demographic readers to relate to Claudia. We see her mostly as a bitter older sister when the story opens, but by the time she is done living with her brother in a museum while researching and investigating the origin of the statue, she has become a quite complex and learned individual. Claudia left home with the intention of teaching her parents a lesson; when it was all said and done, she probably learned more about herself.
