This book is told from a third person point of view. The narrator tells the story, but the narrator only follows one person. (he, they she it). The tone is effected because you only know one persons tone or mood so you do not feel anything else, but what that one person feels. Plot is effected by the reader only knowing one side to every story, or how the one person feels. The story is told from Nate's perspective so as a reader, we really do not know how Abby feels or the coaches. Even Nates' parents. It does not bother me a whole lot other than that i wish we could know how Abby really feels about Nate. It would be nice to know.
