“But love is complicated, it’s messy. It can inspire selflessness, selfishness, our greatest accomplishments and our hardest mistakes. It brings us together and it can just as easily drive us apart.”

Synopsis

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.

Review

Heartbreaking. Tragic. Disgusting. Horrific. Are all words that come to mind to describe this one. This book sinks its claws into your emotions and proceeds to rip your heart out.

As for the format, I was encouraged to listen to the audiobook as this one is quite unique with a podcast element, so I read along in the physical book with the podcast playing. I liked this format as sometimes I listen to true-crime podcasts, which was a familiar medium and made it seem more realistic. I can’t speak to how it would be reading the podcast bits from the pages, but the audiobook served this format well, and I’d recommend it.

Best,

Ashley
