It's so hard to believe that we are so close to half way through the year! I am very close to meeting half of my reading goal. Currently hitting that snag. I hope everyone else I close to their goals!

Author: Courtney Summers
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Publication Date: September 4, 2018
Pages: 320 pages

Summary: A gripping novel about the depth of a sister's love; poised to be the next book you won't be able to stop talking about.

A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial―like podcast following the clues she's left behind.
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.


Sadie was an interesting read to say the least. The start of the book was very slow, I personally had a hard time getting into it. But once the book reached a point that caught my attention I didn’t want to put it down. I did enjoy reading Sadie’s side of everything more, I felt like her side of everything was a bit more exciting. The way the author told the story with the podcast was intriguing, it was a little harder to get into. When I got to the ending of the book, I was very upset with how it ended. I felt like the author left a cliff hanger. I actually went back and reread Sadie’s side to make sure I didn’t miss something. I was frustrated with the book, from the slow beginning to the cliff hanging ending.  I think the book would be a good read for someone who likes the constant change of characters and that mystery feel about it. I personally am not the biggest fan of mysteries. I think others would highly enjoy the read more than I did myself.
