It's a nice enough story about coming home and the characters are interesting so I enjoyed it but the setting issue nagged me throughout the whole story. I also felt like there should have been more background about Tom and Blake's history. I felt like the explanation given for why Blake ran away was too brief especially since it centered around his father but not much about his death was elaborated on. Overall, I liked the story but it was definitely too short for the content, IMO. I did love the grandmother, though! She was pretty awesome.
