This amazing story of the âMarsh Girlâ entered my gut and I became part of Kya's life, living in the Shack in the unwelcome Marsh. I loved her passion for all things nature and her impulsiveness. Her mother walked away when she was six and eventually her sisters and brother left her with a monstrous, abusive father. When he never came back she grew up alone in the shack and learned how to survive.

Many books have affected me emotionally but this one seemed to settle inside and stayed there. It is a heartbreaking, passionate and sensitive novel which brought me to tears.

This one's hard to forget!
