#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING PHENOMENON More than 6 million copies sold A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick A Business Insider Defining Book of the Decade  "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 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.

This book made me laugh, cry, smile, get angry, and feel sorry - all within the first 50 pages of the book. I took me through all the emotions and is the best fiction I have read in 2020. Highly recommended.

Such a beautifully written book, v vivid descriptions that transport the reader. 3 parts to the plot where the book is a part survival, coming of age & murder mystery. Left with a few questions on the ending which is why not rating a 10, but overall I loved it

Engaging story about a young girl growing up in the Carolina’s marshland. The kind of book that stays with you after you’ve finished.

I had a hard time finishing this book. The environmental aspect of Where the Crawdads Sing is beautiful, but the story feels too familiar to keep me interested in.

I absolutely loved this book!! It's a story about abandonment, love, betrayal, prejudice and murder. The author does a fantastic job to paint a picture in your head with her words describing the culture, accents and nature. I was hooked! A must read!!
