5 Stunning Stars🌟 Sadie by Courtney Summers @courtney_s @WednesdayBooks #BookReview

Happy Sunday book lovers!

I have a real treat for you today! Grill to share my review for this stunning and powerful book! 💕💕

Sadie by Courtney Summers

My Thoughts

Stunning! Powerful! Uncomfortable!

WOW! Courtney Summers…. you pulled out my heart, ran it over a few times, and put it back, never to be the same again! This book was so ugly and yet so beautiful… so difficult and yet so easy… so heartbreaking and yet so hopeful… A book that will stay with you long after you finish reading the last page…. sadie is a girl that will not allow you to ever forget her! She is your sister, she is your daughter, she is your best friend, she is you!

Sadie is 19 and has not had the easiest of lives… she never knew her father and her mother abandoned her leaving her to take care of her younger sister Mattie… after Mattie is murdered Sadie is devastated and determined… determined to find and kill the man who killed her sister, because her sister was her whole world… told in alternating narratives from Sadie in the first person on her quest to find the man who killed her sister… and also from West McCray A radio personality recording an investigative podcast on the disappearance of Sadie…. I thought this was a very impactful way to structure the story…. we got the real and raw look into the mind of Sadie along with a look at how others saw her through West’s investigation…. and what we learned from this was that Sadie was an edgy, unforgettable damaged soul with a big heart…

Sadie’s story is riveting, but not easy to digest… this book took me a little longer to read then most, it took me some time to internalize some things… and sometimes I needed to just put the book down and take a few breaths…. sadie broke my heart and I just wanted to reach through those pages give her a big hug and let her know there was someone out there that did care….

Absolutely recommend! This is a hyped book that deserves every bit of the hype it is getting!

About the Book

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 meagre 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.

      1. I listened to the first two episodes. It was good but some of the voice actors of the side characters felt too artificial (?) to me. Like they didn’t sound like regular people but rather more like announcers. Anyways, I think I’ll still continue listening to them.
