BOOK: Sadie

AUTHOR: Courtney Summers 


Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Published: September 4, 2018


We entered into reading this book because our book club, We B Bookin’ is reading it this month. Both Marshall and I listened to the audiobook, which we think really lent to the overall experience of it. You were wanting to follow along with both narrators, compelled to see how the story ends. 


There are a lot of mixed reviews about the ending of this book. Personally I thought the end to the story was real, but can understand why others may not like it. 


Small Summary:

A missing girl on a journey of revenge. A Serial―like podcast following the clues she's left behind. And an ending you won't be able to stop talking about.

Sadie hasn't had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she's been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water.

But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie's entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister's killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him.

When West McCray―a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America―overhears Sadie's story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie's journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it's too late.

Courtney Summers has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.


I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
