A setting is the time and place where the events in a story take place. As you suggest, Walk Two Moons has more than one setting, but arguably the two most important settings are: 1) the past year in Euclid, Ohio and 2) on the road to Lewiston, Idaho now.
One of these two settings is identified in the opening paragraph of Chapter 1:
and we drove three hundred miles and straight north and stopped in front of a house in Euclid, Ohio (p.1).
However, to understand the time associated with the Euclid setting, you need to read the opening paragraph of Chapter 2:
It was after all the adventures of Phoebe that my grandparents came up with a plan to drive from Kentucky to Ohio, where they would pick me up, and then the three of us would drive two thousand miles west to Lewiston, Idaho (p.4).
The road trip came after the adventures with Phoebe. So, the first setting is the past year in Euclid, Ohio.
The second setting is now on the road to Lewiston, Idaho. How can a road which meanders across the country qualify as a “place”? Because, while on the road, the three of them, Sal, Gram, and Gramps, are all in the car together.
How does Creech connect these two settings? By having Sal tell Phoebe’s story (set in Euclid) while she travels across the country with Gram and Gramps.
There is at least one more critical setting also hinted at in the opening paragraph of Chapter 1. Can you identify the place and time or times associated with that place?
Does Lewiston, Idaho qualify as a setting for the story? Why or why not? If it does, what time would you associate with this place?
