Kim Edwards' narration is straightforward and quite American. The style is casual and simple, although not simplistic. Edwards goes into great detail and symbolism as she touches upon Norah's ongoing sense of loss and the destruction David's lie creates. She uses detail and description to lend a sense of reality to the story, but at times, tends to tell one too much rather than let the reader draw his own conclusions.
