The point of veiw is told from the main character, Melinda Sordino. I think she effects the tone in how she describes things and when she is talking about some of the things in the book you can tell if she is being sad, happy, sarcastic, and mad. She says one part in the book "Traitor. She isn't going to stick up for my posters. The peanut butter in my mouth hardens." and ou can tell she is mad because of what she says and how she say it. Another passage is where she sounds scared and nervous, "Maybe he won't notice me if i stand still. That"s how rabbits survuve; they freeze in the presence of predators." You can tell she is scared because of the the context of the rabbit when they get scared they freeze on their tracks. Since she was scared she used that analogy. I think is doen't affect the plot at all because i think any person could the story and the plot could still be the same. Like if a guy told the story they could use the same plot just use a guy instead of a girl and switch some of the characters. I would enjoy the book either way whether it was told from a guy or girls p.o.v.
