Note to the Parent or Teacher: As a former English teacher, I struggled to find second-person narratives. In this book, the narrator refers to Dave as "you," offering a unique spin on this perspective. Initially written in first person, I found having an external human narrator telling Dave's story more compelling. Hope you enjoy this too
