Swamplandia! - Karen Russell Kind of a Heart of Darkness with south Florida carnies. Ava Bigtree is probably the most fully realized adolescent female fictional character I've read about since Mattie Ross in True Grit. I think some of the negative reviews the book gets are from people who are upset by all the misery the author puts Ava through. At first I thought the Kiwi Bigtree sections were just a unnecessary distraction from the main story, but as the story moved along the Kiwi sections became a much needed relief from Ava's trials and tribulations.
