   Good read once you stick with it
It is worth the read once you get past the first bit of the book where it's describing Kya in her marsh life. Then it begins to pick up speed and gets interesting!

   Favorite Quote and Review
My favorite quote in the 370 page book is “We called her The Marsh Girl. Many still call her that. Some whispered that she was part wolf or the missing link between ape and man. That her eyes glowed in the dark. Yet in reality, she was only an abandoned child, a little girl surviving on her own in a swamp, hungry and cold, and we didn’t help her. […] if we had taken her in as one of our own— I think that is what she would be today. If we had fed, clothed, and loved her, invited her into our churches and homes, we wouldn’t be prejudiced against her, and I believe she would not be sitting here today accused of a crime.“ It is the closing statement for Kya’s defense on her murder trial. It shows how people’s biases and discrimination can have lasting impacts on people’s futures and people’s views on them.
This story is so different that I don’t really have a good comparison for another book.
I would give this book a 7 out of 10 because it was a really interesting story and i read it very fast because it kept my attention.

   A Must Read
This book has a little bit of everything you want in a book. The main character is so complex and has had to endure such a hard life. It is about how resilient one can be when pushed. Such an amazing read and definitely gets you in your feelings!

   Love of Nature; Love of Self
Kya is a product of her parents' abandonment and of her will to survive. Although she both fears and longs for human contact, when she does take a chance on love it turns out badly. Some of this is due to circumstances; some is due to lust. The ending is not totally surprising but Owens has woven it into the entire story so that when it happens your feelings for Kya are not diminished. An excellent read!
