Point of View

Alaya Dawn Johnson tells her novel “The Summer Prince” from the first-person limited-omniscient point of view of main character and principal protagonist, June Costa.

Because the story largely centers around June, the story is told from her perspective. This gives the reader unique and intimate insight into June’s thoughts and feelings, allowing them to experience things the way that she experiences them.
