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.

The writing is so beautiful, that it makes me missing nature, the smells of ocean breeze so much. It tells you a story of a marsh girl, Kya, on how she survived living by her own, when everyone left her all alone when she was 6. This book tells you a story about trust, loyalty, family, society and some hints of mystery.

It’s amazing to read how beautiful Tate, spend some of his time to teach Kya how to read, write and some other things that she should’ve learned in school. And knowing the adventures between them both, and how they grow up together, saying goodbye to each other — it breaks my heart.

And happened to be there’s a body found one day, and what’s the connection between that case and Kya?

Y’all, please read this book. Painfully-beautiful 🤍
