Where the Crawdads Sing

#1 New York Times Bestseller
A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick

"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.

Rich, Beautiful, all the Details I Love...5 star

I want to read books where the author takes you there; the sights, the sound, the smells, and most of all the tastes. In Kya’s details you feel the sand, see the marsh, taste the biscuits, hear the birds squawking and flying all around, hear and smell the fat poppin on Ma’s stove. There are two different stories to follow here, her story in the marsh and the murder trial of Chase Andrews. Twines together this is an elegant tale of a rough life of a you girl who becomes a women in a wild and lonesome world. 55

I really enjoyed this book!4 star

I’m not a huge fan of “coming of age” stories, but this was really beautiful. I cared deeply for the complex, multi-layered characters, and the love story was really sweet. The setting was so beautifully detailed, I swear you could smell the salty marshes of NC! 45
