House with a Blue Door is about a social worker, Charles, who begins working at a geriatric house called Jarvis House. Readers see what Charles does every day, mainly every shift during his stay. While we’re reading about Charles’s routine, we meet characters that are preferred and all the more energizing over him. We meet mentally disabled characters such as Julia, Kate, Dan, Carter, and Lisa. We see what they do on a daily basis, for example, taking pills, and that is basically it.
