In my view, ensuring proper sequence of events in a book includes two parts.
1) The flow of events has to make sense and connect the pieces of the story.
2) And perhaps more importantly, unnecessary events that do not add to the story should be left out.
For example, your character has to turn the appropriate age to drive before they can take their driving test. A birthday and then a drivers test is a sensible order.
However, we may not need to know she turned the appropriate age, then she chatted with her Mom, then she walked to the coffee shop, then she stepped in the DMV, and then she failed her driving test.
Tell the reader what they need to know in an order that makes sense.
For my book, The Light of Supremazia, students attend a school run by spirits. Here’s a calendar depiction of the events the students participate in:
