Docket Page 8 – Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

CHARGE (What was the author trying to say?): She intended to write a “sociobiological thriller.”

FACTS: Nature vs. civilization. Purity vs. evil. A well-crafted story that I could not put down. The “Marsh Girl” survives alone in the wild. “How much would you trade to defeat loneliness?” Find the price that Kya is willing to pay.

VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Guilty, as charged. A page-turning eco-thriller!
