NOTES

"In her rural Appalachian holler, ten-year-old Misty's closest friends are the crawdads. Misty can speak to them, to the birds, to the creek, to everything outside, and she understands how they think.

When her only friend William takes their friendship too far, Misty doesn't know how to get help.
