This collection of four short stories allows insight into the life of Matthew Emerson, a fictional, yet emotionally complex, character. Matt plays a significant role in each story, yet only one is told from his point of view. The rest are told from the third person point of view of his brother, a potential friend, and a girlfriend. This allows the readers to not only experience the main human elements--hope, fear, denial, and anger--through a diversity of characters, but it helps create a more rounded picture of Matt as he's seen through several different eyes.
