The story is presented in a combination of first person and third person and moves from a limited perspective to an omniscient perspective. The twists of the plot make this an option available to the author and it is used without a great deal of confusion. The book opens in first person from Will Klein's perspective. When the action moves away from Will's immediate view, the story switches to third person and an omniscient perspective. This is necessary because it is the only way for the reader to learn what is going on in other situations related to the plot of the story.
