The book is written in third person from the perspective of Cole Matthews. This limited perspective means the reader doesn't know what's really going on in the minds of the other characters. The limitation is lessened by dialogue and pieces of information discovered by Cole. For example, the reader learns that Garvey and Edwin hurt someone at some point in their past. It's not clear whether this was a shared experience or if they perpetuated some crime, but both feel the need to help someone else in order to make up for what they did. Cole never learns the details, meaning the reader doesn't know the details of this past event.
