I read this one slowly because I did not want it to end. Yes, I wanted to know what would happen but for some reason I was too afraid to get there! 

Kya Clark lives in a shack on the marsh and is known as “The Marsh Girl” (the townspeople were so original). Her family life doesn’t lend to many social skills, and she would rather hang by herself with the wildlife than interact with people. She has an open heart, but doesn’t trust easily. Her yearning for contact will lead her into a bit of a mess.

When popular, former star quarterback Chase Andrews is found dead in the marsh Kya becomes the only suspect. Is she easily a scapegoat because she is different? Or is she a murderer? If she didn’t easily trust anyone before, well you can forget that now.

Kya is a rare character; one your heart will break for and at times want to hug (I hate hugs, but she definitely needed one!) Questions you will ask yourself: do you think Kya did it? Was it an accident? Did Chase deserve what was coming for him? Who killed Chase?

But, this book was much more than the mystery of Chase. It is a story of perseverance, acceptance and love for so many of the characters.

Have you read Where the Crawdads Sing?! Where you just as surprised at the ending?
