Susie narrates her tale from Heaven; she was killed and left buried in a frozen field.  If you mean the actual state where she lived when she was alive, I don't believe Sebold ever says exactly.  It is a suburban community with cold winters, so a good guess might be New York, from whence Sebold hales, or somewhere New England-y.

I think she said a suburb of Philadelphia.
