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.

MY GOODREADS REVIEW 

★★★☆☆

This was so heartbreakingly emotional to read.

The audiobook made it very atmospheric. It sounded like I was listening to a podcast with all the music and sound effects.

 

I THOUGHT IT WAS A MYSTERY NOVEL…

The reason my rating isn’t higher is because this was sold to me as a mystery and I saw everything that was coming. But that doesn’t mean it’s badly written or anything. I absolutely loved the writing style and overall atmosphere of the book. I really liked Sadie’s representation in the story. If I was told that this was going to be more about sisterly love than a mystery then I might have enjoyed it more. The plot was very predictable for me so if you’re going into this, just expect more emotion than mystery. I don’t know what else to say XD because it’s a really good book but very different from what I expected.

I mean, I still cried at the last chapter and I can’t contradict how this book is something that sticks with you long after you have finished reading it. I think that it is a powerful book that is uniquely it’s own.
