Lovely Bones - Discussion Question # 4
The Lovely Bones takes place in an American Suburb in the 1970s. In what ways is this setting important to how the story unfolds? What is the significance of specific elements of Susie's landscape: the familiar houses in her neighborhood, the sinkhole, the farmland? Why do you think the author choose this time period? How would the story be different if it were happening today?
