Great question! Button Hill is the name of the small town where Dekker and Riley go to live with their strict Great-Aunt Primrose. The town is built onto the top of a hill that sticks out in the middle of the prairies. I thought of the name, Button Hill, because it’s one of the places in the world where the realms of the living and the dead overlap, like two sides of a shirt that are buttoned together in the front. I kept thinking I would change the name as the story went along, but Button Hill grew on me, and now it’s here to stay!
