The story is told in first person, and the language of the novel is filtered through that character. When characters or scenes are described, the words used to describe them are Lucy's words, and not only her opinion of the character or scene but also her personality becomes apparent. The tone of the book very much reflects Lucy's personality and sensibilities.
