YA books set in Keeney, Washington


Keeney is outside of Seattle. It’s a place with lattes, flannel, tech retirees, and organic gardens. It’s a place where the whole town shows up for the Forth of July parade, and a Friday night football game is a major event. Yet aside from these social events, people in Keeney tend to live  in silos.
