A Northern Light
Jennifer Donnelly
p. 322

The story is told in first person from the point of view of the main character, Mattie Gokey. It does affect the point of view because Mattie is a very bookish person and she always sees things in a literature-like way, if that makes any sense at all. Also, there is a murder in the book that actually happened in real life. I like that we see it through the eyes of one person, it makes it more personal and more enjoyable to read. Also there is a lot of romance in the story, and romances written in anything other than first person are usually strange.
