The setting is Concord, Massachusetts. It is a wonderful setting for the the mother daughter book club because of the book they were reading was Little Women and the author was Louisa May Alcott and she used to live in Massachusetts in her Orchard House. And at the end of the book got to visit her house and that's when Jess's mom came home to surprise her!!!!!! Happy Ending!! Any ways Massachusetts was also a good setting because a lot of history was there like when the red coats were going to boston for the revolutionary war. And they celebrate it every year with a mullet and they dress up as minutemen and red coats and the whole book club's dads were minutemen.
