"I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!" —Reese Witherspoon
"Painfully beautiful."—The New York Times Book Review
"Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver."—Bustle

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life—until the unthinkable happens.
Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

If you want a book you can't put down with celebration of nature thrown in, this is a great summer read for you. Kya succeeds against all odds. What is family, friendship, love and community? Owens is a great story teller and i love her celebration of nature and it's importance in this story. The only weak point is... what if Kya was not beautiful. This seemingly was an advantage for her and also her downfall. Best not to think too much and just enjoy this book.
