I admire novelists who take a different path when writing their books. Awad is another example. She uses a variety of POVs--best friend, lover, etc. But it's more than that, some of the opening chapters made me wonder if I was reading a linked short story collection or a novel. Later chapters confirmed it was a novel.
First-time authors are warned: Don't play loose and easy with the rules. Later when you're an established author have-at-her. But. Not. Now.
