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
