Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens- Book Review

This will be one of my favorite books this year. It was a beautiful story. The top two words I’d use to describe Where the Crawdads Sing would be moving and emotional. This is a book that you finish but it stays with you for days and weeks after reading. It’s one that I could easily re-read because I want to go through the story again. You feel for the main character Kya because she grows up alone, abandoned by her mother, with her father who drinks his life away. She doesn’t trust people because of how she has been treated but she teaches herself how to live and feel things. She grows up in the marshes and it becomes a big part of her life. I would give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, and would give it more than five stars if I could. I recommend this book to all my friends, family and strangers :). 

Synopsis: The story is set in the 1950s and revolves around a young woman named Kya Clark, who is from extremely rural North Carolina. Known by others as the Marsh Girl, she lives alone in nature—but the draw of other people, and specifically love, brings her into contact with the greater world.
