For my book I am reading Unwind, by Neal Shusterman, the book takes place in the future, after a second civil war. In the book the characters (Risa, Connor, and Lev) move around a lot but at the beginning they start at Ohio, and in the middle of the book is in Missouri. In Unwind it is really important where the characters are because they are trying to hide and be safe and not get their location compromised.
The factors that are affecting the setting, well, they like to move around more at night, because it is harder to spot my characters and they can also spot police cars from a distance away. Weather hasn’t been a factor of setting really at all in my book so far. The characters spend most of their time inside.
The setting can change how my main characters think, right now in my book, my main characters are hiding in a cellar underneath an antique shop. How safe they feel depends on where they are and what they are doing at a certain time. Setting is very important in Unwind, because setting is the main thing on the characters minds all the time, until they are fully safe from being unwound. Setting is basically the whole book.
