Realistic Fiction for Grades | ScholasticRealistic fiction can be defined as a genre of writing in which the characters, setting, and events are made up but could be real. These stories resemble real life because they reflect real experiences—things people like you and I go through. The people and animals in realistic fiction stories could exist in the world as we know it. That means no superheroes, no talking pets, and no fairytale creatures. A realistic character might remind you of yourself, or they might help you understand people of a different culture, religion, gender, sexuality, level of ability, or socioeconomic status. Reading about realistic characters with different experiences can help us empathize better with the people in our real lives. Realistic fiction stories usually take place in an ordinary part of the real world—a setting that is not just possible but likely.
