Activity Overview


The setting in a story includes where and when the story takes place. There are usually several settings in a novel. In historical fiction novels such as Midnight Without a Moon, when the story takes place is extremely important, as it is centered around an important time in the past. This novel takes place in the deep South, during a time of segregation, racism, and the unfathomable mistreatment of African Americans.
