Lost Boys is told by a straightforward third person narrator who has access to the thoughts of the main characters Step and DeAnne, but not the other characters. The result is that the reader understands DeAnne's and Step's judgements of other people while having no privileged information. This causes the reader to empathize with Step and DeAnne's having to make important decisions without being utterly sure that they are doing the right thing. For instance, Step discovers his job is not what he thought it would be, that there are currents and politics in the office that he does not understand, and yet he must decide to go or stay based on the little information he does have. If he guesses wrong, his family will suffer. He wants to protect his family but is not sure which way is best.
