The setting contributes to the story because when Akos and his brother get taken to Voa, Akos is kind of the oddball because he is from a different part of the planet, so he is "thin-skinned" meaning that he is weak, and he also has pale skin compared to all Shotet people who have darker skin. Akos is also really, really tall, so that makes a difference when he entered the storyteller's home, He had to duck to get inside.
The setting also contributes to what is happening in my book, because in the beginning, when they were watching the hushflowers bloom, they had to wear heavy, fur skin coat. And then with the hushflowers themselves, they can only bloom in really cold weather.
The Setting also contributed to the overall feeling of the book, because most times, the setting will set the vibe of what you are reading. So in my case, When they were getting ready for the sojourn, everybody was celebrating and I imagined lots of color everywhere, ribbons tied from pole to pole and then the sojourn ship sprayed out blue rain and coated the city ij blue, so that contributed to the vibe of the story in that part.
