Get to know the setting of “Meet Julie”
Since this Book is placed during the time when women and girls did not have as many rights as men and boys it played a HUGE part in this book and had many positive and negative effects on the book. One effect was Julie could not play on the boys basketball team……. at first. Another way the setting affected the books is the fact that Julie had to move away from her old house, her dad and her best friend and because the setting changed so did the story.
In conclusion the setting has a very powerful effect on the book. Just one change in setting can change many things including mood, plot, main idea and many others. The setting in Meet Julie is very important and effect the book a lot.
