Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

The story follows two timelines that slowly intertwine. The first timeline describes the life and adventures of a young girl named Kya as she grows up isolated in the marsh of North Carolina from 1952–1969. The second timeline follows a murder investigation of Chase Andrews, a local celebrity of Barkley Cove, a fictional coastal town of North Carolina.

Comments: I really enjoyed Delia Owen's writing. Even though I've never been to the marshes I feel like I have through Owen's descriptions. The marsh was almost a character itself in the book. I also enjoyed reading about a female character that I could relate to. There's a lot about Kya's character that I understand from my own life experience. I liked that she was both flawed and inspirational.
