I'm personally not a big fan of maps, and I always tend to gloss over them when encountered. I believe they did play an essential role in this case, by contextualising the environment Sarah and her friends found herself in, but again, I was not commited to studying them, and ended up just envisioning everything in my head anyways.

An individual uses a map to see the world. Having a good imagination of the geographical settings ensures proper flow and understanding of the story. It's a good one.

The maps were a very vital part of the book for me! More than the maps making the reading experience more enjoyable, it was easier to understand the settings of the story because I could visualize where and what was happening in a particular scene.

A book map is a strategy that uses a graphic organizer to help readers understand the elements of the book. By identifying the story characters, plot, setting, problem, solution, and learn the details.

The significance of a map is to give direction but for the book, it helps the reader to understand the book from the onset and also helps the reader to locate the desired page

The maps at the beginning of the novel is a tool to help the reader create an accurate mental picture of the geographical setting of the novel. I
am glad Sheldon created the maps.

The map is very important. It is a technique employed by the author in order to effectively create a vivid image of the physical environment in which the story occurs in the mind of the reader.

The maps certainly give a geographical setting and helps the reader visualize the landscape mentioned in the story. The setting is a pivotal aspect of the book. But more than that, I personally believe that it adds almost authenticity to the storyline and creates a more immersive affect while reading the book.

I think maps exist to give us a sense of where we are geographically, to assist you find yourself in some places, and to give us a mental image. Maps are nice to have in my books.

Maps are very important to the reader because they can always refer to them whenever a location is mentioned. It is also a plus for the author as the story looks credible.
