"Sadie : a novel for readers of any age, and a character as indelible as a scar. Flat-out dazzling." -- A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
" Sadie is an electrifying, high-stakes road trip. Clear your schedule. You're not going anywhere until you've reached the end." --Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of There's Someone Inside Your House and Anna and the French Kiss
"A haunting, gut-wrenching, and relentlessly compelling read." --Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Carve the Mark and the Divergent series
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.

Timely. Thrilling. Heart-wrenching. This story will definitely stay with me. The narrative alternates between an investigative podcast and the voice of Sadie, the older sister who goes searching for her sister's murderer. I listened to the audiobook, which has a full cast, and it was brilliant.
