I read A LOT of books, in all different genres, love sci-fi and stuff that's a bit out there/strange especially... but this is a more normal/grounded novel that I thought might be a good fit for some of the people on this board. A story of a girl, who has to survive largely on her own, growing up in a swamp; an interesting story that's quite emotional and heartwrenching at times, with a very strong connection to nature (nature is almost like a second character in the book).
