I think Peter can fit in here since he is so close to Will in this present scenario.

Maybe from one of the animals views, the wolf especially. But it's hard to imagine what that would be like since we get Will's view.

I have not yet read the book. But from the reviews I have read it must be interesting, especially listening to the audio. I think I would still prefer Dew Pellucid's point of view.

I think I would choose Dew Pellucid. For me, her character needed some more development. I felt that Pellucid has a lot of potential as a character, and reading the story from her point of view would add a lot to the story and provide some insight into her character!
I thought it was odd of the author to include herself as a character.

I can see why you would feel that way! I think it would have worked better if her character had had more development and readers were given hints as to why it's significant that the author and a character are one and the same. But as the story stands, it does seem kind of random and out of place.

I think the point of view of Emmy would be super interesting! She seemed to be completely okay, even though she had been tortured for most of her childhood. I'd love to know if she was just hiding it for Will's sake or to see if the orphanage gave her some sort of counseling.

I would have liked to read from Dew Pellucid's POV. I think she would provide a unique insight into the story and I was really curious to find out more about her character
