(Sort of. She's on the border between Austin and Round Rock, TX—a town that’s been spread-eagling quite perpetually for the past decade, whose shopping centers keep breeding and every apartment complex is named after a type of nature that exists nowhere near it (e.g., Lakeside at La Frontera = Chelsey's apartment building that’s big enough to necessitate two, four-level parking garages and that has an exquisite view of the “lake,” which is really a manmade pond they plopped down a whopping two blocks west of Lowes, Kohl’s, Petco, T-Mobile, Marshalls, Hooters, Hobby Lobby, et al.), it’s a town whose parking lots keep seeping further into the fringes of a city that insists it’s staying weird, regardless of the normative urban sprawl trespassing on its eccentricity. Either way, Chelsey finally feels at home.)
