When one of our favorite books is turned into a movie, we’re interested to see how the movie will turn out. Will our favorite parts be in the movie? What will be different about the movie from the book? We could keep asking all of the questions we have. In fact, we’re asking ourselves the same things now that one of Reese Witherspoon’s favorite books from her book club is about to be made into a movie. Before the movie Where the Crawdads Sing comes out in theaters on July 15, you can buy a copy of the New York Times bestseller on Amazon for less than $10.
The book by Delia Owens seems like it was made to be turned into a movie. Where the Crawdads Sing is about a girl who has lived and taken care of herself for most of her life in a marsh near a small town in North Carolina called Barkley Cove. Kya Clark is seen as strange by most people in her town, but the young woman is more in tune with the world than most people think. But when Chase Andrews, a young man, is found dead, Kya is one of the people who are most likely to have done it.

The book is both an exciting murder mystery and a coming-of-age story. It is also a thoughtful, poetic look at the natural world around us. After choosing the book for her book club in September 2018, Witherspoon was drawn in by the story. It’s not hard to see why the producer and Oscar-winning actress wanted to turn the well-known book into a movie. Even though Where the Crawdads Sing hasn’t come out yet, it’s already getting a lot of attention.

Daisy Edgar-Jones, who was in the show Normal People, is in the movie, as well as Harris Dickinson as Chase Andrews, Taylor John Smith as Tate Walker, David Stratharin, and others. The above trailer for the movie gives a sneak peek at how the exciting story will be told. We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty excited about this adaptation of a book to the big screen. Before the film hits theaters on July 15, make sure you get your copy of Where the Crawdads Sing now.
