    All of you talked me into reading this book The Goodreads reviews were virtually unanimously good, not just good, great It had to be good, I thought And because I needed an extra audiobook I bought it on Libro.fm and locked myself into reading it Bad decision.This book is just a pile of tropes and cliches dressed up in some nice nature writing The plot is not much of a plot and the mystery makes up only a small section of the book, and much of it ends up being courtroom scenes and not much All of you talked me into reading this book The Goodreads reviews were virtually unanimously good, not just good, great It had to be good, I thought And because I needed an extra audiobook I bought it on Libro.fm and locked myself into reading it Bad decision.This book is just a pile of tropes and cliches dressed up in some nice nature writing The plot is not much of a plot and the mystery makes up only a small section of the book, and much of it ends up being courtroom scenes and not much mystery This book is basically Manic Pixie Dream Girl In the Marsh We spend a long time with young Kya, abandoned, fending for herself, almost entirely isolated I was willing to be patient through all that, to see what kind of person she would grow into because that had the potential to be very interesting.Except it was not It ...
