A Northern Light
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.
