Told through the point of view of the character Daisy, Tyler uses irony to tell the story of a teenage boy who is failed by the adults in his life who are supposed to help him flourish, including his parents, a psychologist, and his tutor. When Donny is performing poorly at school, the school contacts his parents to attend a conference to discuss Donny’s behavior. Tyler portrays irony with the character of Donny’s mother, Daisy, as Daisy herself is a former school teacher, so it is ironic that her child is failing at school as she should know better than other parents how best to help her child succeed academically. Daisy tells the principal that they are concerned about Donny, but that “he tells us he doesn’t have any homework or he did it all in study hall. How are we to know what to believe?” (3).

Xavier and Elijah were together at a residential school before Niska broke the two of them out and raised them on her own before they went off to serve in the war.
