Error or intentional? *spoilers*

Andrew Brenycz In "The Great Spin" during the final scene, Jonah is about to float away but Joey's name is used instead (page 74, last paragraph):

"Joey thought he saw birds being pulled in..."

Is it a typo? I've also considered the possibility that it's something intentional like a suggestion that Jonah and Joey are two sides of the same person, or that it's referencing what Joey would have seen earlier in the story when he "dies."

Just curious about anyone's thoughts, really enjoyed this collection and I think The Great Spin was my favorite.

Karen Heuler Andrew, thank you!

This is indeed a typo--my apologies! I will use this as an example of why it's a good idea to avoid using the same beginning letter for two main characters. It can confuse the reader and sometimes it can even confuse the writer.
