Beautifully written, but the story is really slow. I don't like the narrator voice, took me a while to get used too.
This book had me hooked from the first chapter! I couldn’t stop listening. Narration was perfect.
A poignant powerful book. I listen while I commute I have teared up for this girl, laughed and clapped for her, and cried for her. Her observant solitude is both breathtaking and heartbreaking. Such a tender soul who lived such a hard life. She is the delicate lacy spiderweb of humankind - strong enough to withstand harshness and essential survival, yet beautifully graceful in her existence. And she rises so far above those who disparage her. It’s also a social statement of a community’s penchant for ostracizing and ignoring the less fortunate among us.
This is a fantastic, gripping story. I found narrator’s voice as a child and young adult quite annoying. Not enough to stop listening though !
I couldn't put the book down. It's been a long time since I've been captivated by a story and felt comfortable with the writing style. I learned so much and shed a tear of the end. a great read.
I tend to only read non-fiction however, I loved this book!!! The hype is justified!!!! I would highly recommend this book!!!
This book was mesmerizing, heart wrenching, and full of surprises! It's not like anything I've ready before...beautifully written and narrated. I could close my eyes and imagine myself there in the marsh with them. I wanted to see all of Kya's books she wrote and published!
Excellent, excellent, excellent. The book, the narrating, everything was excellent
Very well written book that has a little something for everybody as well as a fantastic ending. I thought it was going to be a little on the chick flicky side, but I cant really say that. This might be the best book I've listened to this year. Also, the narrator absolutely nails it. Highly recommend.
