Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens is set in a small, quiet town in North Carolina and centers on Kya Clark, a.k.a. the “Marsh Girl,” who, from a young age, is an outcast and fends for herself. It’s a gorgeous coming-of-age tale about love, tragedy, and the secrets we hold onto and keep to ourselves.
The breathtaking novel touched the hearts of millions of readers. It was Read It Forward’s book club pick of March and it really sparked a lot of discussion. Editors Abbe and Jess want to share their thoughts with everyone on Kya’s character development, her isolation, the love—platonic and romantic—that she has for others, the beauty of the natural world, and more.
More importantly, we want to keep the conversation around this book going. So let us know what you think, whether you agree or disagree, by joining our Facebook Group. We look forward to hearing from you!
