The book is set in a small town in Indiana (yay home pride!), and the top right picture is actually from my street! The Indiana factor is a big one, and there's a particular hill Violet and Finch go to that reminded me of home, seeing as my town sits about 600 feet above and looks out over Louisville.
Post-its and small notes are a big part of Finch's world, and he uses them to document ideas about songs, words, and other things he likes, and they are a constantly changing and evolving set of notes. He introduces them to Violet, and they become a big part of their relationship.
Lastly, my favorite. One of the central focuses of the book is the school project they are working on together, exploring Indiana. My favorite scene includes them finding a Bookmobile Park, run by a couple who was sad to see Bookmobiles not going to use, so they bought a bunch and ran a little park of book stores on wheels.
