Time and Place


Our story takes place somewhere in the Midwest (probably Oklahoma, according to the author). It's late summer - beginning a few days before the start of school until a few days after. The time is present day (or at least the present day in our altered-reality where kids were able to start school in person instead of via Zoom).


All of the action takes place over four days at Graceland Elementary School, except for a few scenes that take place in Penny's memory.
