Two girls become friends while committing a juvenile act. One grows up as an environmentalist, while the other remains bonded to her immigrant family. Someone is shot and years later the shallow grave releases the dead. Uncovering the clues and piecing the story is told by walking the same circular path for the entire book. Lack of accountability wasn't as concerning as lack of maturity. The stages of development was lost and reminding the reader of every client past event was annoying. The author could have focused on a central theme, if it were immigration, forest conservation or reunited in a small growth at the edge of National Land. I would recommend to a novice reader.
I don’t think the title had anything to do with the story. I saw that it was compared to where the Crawdad’s Sing and in my opinion, no comparison other than maybe some of the nature aspect. This book was just enough to hold my interest to finish it. Was way too flowery and descriptive all the way through.
This is author's first novel. Very wordy. It's like each sentence is crammed full of as many words of details as possible. It took a lot to muddle through this one. The story is okay. There's a twist at the end but it was lukewarm. Kiddos to the writer for publishing during a pandemic, but I can't recommend this one.
