Where the Crawdads Sing
by: Delia Owens
This is a story about the survival of a young girl who was abandoned by her parents, siblings and almost an entire North Carolina town shunned her. She lived in a shack in a marsh on her own for years. When the towns “golden boy” is found dead in the marsh, the locals immediately suspect Kya and she is on trial for her life. I read this book in 2 days because I wanted to know the ending. This book had a bit of everything to offer – romance, murder mystery and a girl coming of age on her own. Very good book, I would recommend it.
