Why did I love this book?
Where the Crawdads Sing by Deliah Owens captured my heart. As a truly heartbreaking and moving coming-of-age story, this is a book that is a challenge to put down with its beautiful depiction of the richness of nature, the depth of childhood into adulthood, and its ability to teach vulnerability. I loved this book because it includes a captivating plot, a truly artistic flow to its narrative, and it is a coming-of-age story not only for the character but also for the reader. It is a truly beautifully crafted novel.
