The author uses first-pesron narrative in to bring us closer to Tom's thought's and emotions. The anger with the attack,and confusion he feels with his newly gained powers are all there. The book brings us closer to both Tom and Lucy by paralleling Tom's struggle to gain control over his powers and Lucy's attempts to come to terms with her attack.
This book is definitely not for the faint at heart. It is an emotionally powerful,gripping read.
