Where the Crawdads Sing , by Delia Owens
Joyland , by Stephen King
For years , rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove , a quiet fishing village . Kya Clark is barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society . So in late 1969 , when the popular Chase Andrews is found dead , locals immediately suspect her .
But Kya is not what they say . A born naturalist with just one day of school , she takes life ' s lessons from the land , learning the real ways of the world from the dishonest signals of fireflies . But while she has the skills to live in solitude forever , the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved . Drawn to two young men from town , who are each intrigued by her wild beauty , Kya opens herself to a new and startling world—until the unthinkable happens .
Set in a small - town North Carolina amusement park in 1973 , Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny .
After realizing his romantic life is not going in the direction he ' d hoped , Devin Jones decides to take a summer job at an amusement park . There he makes friends with Tom Kennedy and Erin Cook , also summer hires at Joyland , which years before had been the scene of the murder of a young woman named Linda Gray whose ghost is said to be seen at the Horror House . He also befriends a young boy , named Mike Ross and his mother , Annie . Their lives all become entwined when Devin decides to investigate the mystery of Linda Gray ' s unsolved murder by the Carny Killer .
