The first specific location is Laureth's house in London. Her house is quiet small and Laureth spends most of her time in her dads cluttered computer room where she answers emails on there Mac computer. The second specific location is the crowded London airport and air plane. Since it's an airport Laureth describes it as very crowded with so many different sounds it's hard to focus on where your going. The airplane was described as very tight.
Since my book takes place in two very populated places it's been really crowded. The people who are in my book are like people all around us. There are really kind people who help Laureth, some that are mean to her and don't understand why she keeps bumping into everyone, and finally people who are kind but taken back when she tells them she's blind. It makes me feel happy knowing that there are so many people who want to help Laureth and I imagine it would be hard for Laureth to navigate through a crowded airport.
Even though there are some good parts in my story it's mostly dreary. The reason it's dreary is because Laureth knows something's wrong with her dad and he hasn't responded to any calls or messages. Another reason the mood is dreary is because things at home are weird for Laureth. For example her mom spends a lot of time not at home and her dad doesn't write funny books any more.
The setting effects the story because Laureth has to go on a plane and through an airport to get to New York and hopefully find her dad. Since airports are always very crowded without having to go to the airport it wouldn't show us the talent Laureth has at navigating and finding her way in places. It also wouldn't show the system she and her brother has at helping her pretend she isn't blind. Also without the crowdedness of the airport Laureth wouldn't have met some of the nicest people.
