"Painfully beautiful."--The New York Times Book Review
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.
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.
Beautiful story and well written!4By candieapple99The story is some compelling and heartfelt. I was originally turned onto this book dude to all the rave reviews and recommendations from blogs I follow, but when I started the book I struggled to get into the story and the characters. Being s murder/ mystery and psycho triller reader I was struggling to keep my interest since the first part of the story develops the characters and their relationships (well written no doubt), but he murder/mystery plot didn’t really get going until the part 2... that was when I couldn’t put the book down! The story is gets you at your heart strings and provides a little something for everyone, romance, love, friendship, hardship, and mystery all wrapped into one fabulous story.

Steamed is best5By TimdoodlesBoiling crab is where they sing, and it sounds tasty
More Details3By laurmollThis novel started off strong, but the ending was rushed and predictable. Character development was weak, and some ideas seemed forced. I would have enjoyed the story more if it was 50-100 pages longer so I could have those details I’m craving.
