Tony was raised in a uneducated town with educated parents who made it their mission to help kids be their best. With this childhood Tony is able to see the world very differently.
When reading a fiction, not only the plot, but also the narrator and the point of view are important to readers in order to understand the story. Stories can be told in a various angle of vision or in one perspective, depending on which person point of view. “A story is said to be from a character’s point of view, or a character is said to be a focal or focalizing character” (Norton, 174).
