Themes Edit

The novels and short stories deal with different themes but mostly concentrate on perception. The main novel deals with how Toni perceives the incidents around her, but the reader too is encouraged to try to interpret the events on their own but only seeing them through Toni's eyes. Scenes between the novels and short stories are often revisited from different perspectives. This allows the reader to see that even if we know what happened from a different perspective we still may not know the truth as it depends on who is perceiving it.

Other themes include be careful what you wish for, and the ever important "Do as you're told." Toni is often finding that both of these are important and go hand in hand.

Also the thin grey line between good and evil, right and wrong is explored to a great extent even involving the titles of the novels.
