Where the Crawdads Sing

In 1969 Chase Andrews, handsome town charmer, football quarterback is found dead at the bottom of the fire tower. This small southern marsh town is overwhelmed with grief and rampant with suspicion. Appalled that Chase had a past relationship with Kya Clark, they immediately point their nasty fingers at this beautiful young woman who lives alone out in the marsh. Taunted by the other children, she only attended school for one day. After being abandoned by her family, Kya raised herself alone in the woods and a little boy named Tate taught her to read. Kya spent her days intensely studying nature and the world around. Much to the towns surprise reclusive Kya became a published author and expert naturalist. With few people in her life to vouch for her whereabouts, Kya has always been an easy target for their malice. Told between the past and the present the reader dives deep into the marsh and the surroundings that Kya struggles to understand. Viewing life in the simplest form she is both brilliant and honest, lonely but terrified of letting anyone into her world. With the movie releasing any day now, I had to read this 2018 bestseller first! I loved every minute of it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
