This story takes place in a small town called Gatlin, located in South Carolina. It is located near the Santee River valley. In the book, the author states that, “I used to think our town, buried in the South Carolina backwoods, stuck in the muddy bottom of the Santee River valley, was the middle of nowhere.”(Garcia and Stohl 1) There are also many other minor places in the book, that are located within the town of Gatlin. Some of the constant places where the characters go are the library, the ‘Jackson High school’, the ‘lunae libre’, the lake, and the restaurant Dar-ee-keen. The story also takes place in Old London Streets in a time travel, where some of the main characters had reached in search of Lena (another main character). The text also states, “I was lying in a city street that looked like London or an old town right out of a history book”.
