Crowley weaves the plot together through the perspectives of Ed and Lucy, two unique, nuanced teenage voices, interspersed with the works of Poet as the night unfolds.

The book skips between both Lucy’s grafftii Ed’s POVs with a dash of Poet’s writing in between that gives a foreshadowing and yet another view of events but it never becomes overcrowded with views or confusing.
