Review: Where the Crawdads Sing
By: Delia Owens
From the very first page I was drawn into this book. I rooted for Kya because life just seemed to hand her the bad apples. Every chapter was addicting, which made it very hard for me to put down.
The summer of 1969, Chase Andrews is found dead. Automatically the town people blame Kya (the Marsh Girl) for his murder. With no evidence that puts her at the scene of the crime or a clear motive, Kya is arrested and put on trial. We are taken on a journey of Kya’s life as a young girl, and we see her grow as a woman and as a character. The town judges her because of the side of the marsh she lives on, and when Kya finds herself all alone she is forced to take care of herself.
As the truths of Chase and Kya are discovered the question that lingers is to what lengths will Kya go to protect her heart?
I thoroughly enjoyed this read and highly recommend you pick it up if you haven’t.
Until next time, until the next book.
