Setting is a very important part of any story. In my book,” two can keep a secret”, the setting changes a lot and every single one is very important. Setting is utilized by helping us find a particular theme for the story as a whole. Every single character is effected by each setting. If we did not have a setting in a story, we would have no idea what is truly going on. Yes, we would know a tiny bit but we couldn’t dig deep into any questions we have. The story would be bland without a particular place or places in a story. My book has many settings; The kids actual hometown (never told the name), Echo Ridge, and Echo Ridge High School. Even though there are only 3 main settings, each part of the school and towns are the extra settings. Where they saw the man laying on the ground… that was in between their hometown and Echo Ridge, that is a very important apart of the story. You see, without setting the story is really nothing. Setting affects all characters because some are not in the same as others so everything is different or they see a very different side of someone else’s story. Some characters.. like the twins’ grandmother is definitely the most effected by the setting. She lost her daughter in one town, saw someone else die in between where her other daughter and her self lives, and there is always trouble in whatever town she goes into. The setting is easily revealed to us readers because they just jump right into it with lots of detail, so there is barely any searching for us.
