  • Writers Cannot Do Math: Early editions of the book state that April's father "died in The Korean War before April even had a chance to get to know him." The book was written in 1967, April is eleven, and the Korean War ended in 1953. See the problem yet? (In some later editions, he died in "an accident" instead.)

Not an example, unless somebody can explain why it's apparently impossible for stories to take place in a year other than the one in which it was written.
