People read to escape the 'real world'. How does a book set in the 'real world' help people escape it?

Having a book set in the "real world" doesn't mean people can't escape in it. For example, I escape the "real world" by reading books like Because of Windixie, or anything by Andrew Clements which is realistic fiction. You don't have to be in a fantasy setting to get into a book.

Well I don't read books to escape the 'real world'.I read because I like reading.
