Sadie – Review
by: Courtney Summers
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.
Sadie – Review
Minority-land, here I come!
This was so hard for me to review. On one hand, I enjoyed it. On the other hand, I didn’t. I didn’t hate it or love it, but overall, it was just meh for me.
Sadie comes from a place of wicked hurt and despair. She has been abused, her mother hates her, and then her little sister dies. She sets out on a revenge journey, to find the person who killed her sister. I liked the mystery of trying to find her, which is what half of the book is. The other half is Sadie’s journey, and it was ughhhh. Just not for me.
I loved the dueling POV format, especially the podcast sections. I listened to the audio for the podcast while I read it, and it definitely enhanced my reading experience. However, there was just so much that fell short for me. I finished up the book and literally said to myself, “That’s it?” This book didn’t blow me away like many others. I wasn’t satisfied with the ending, but I wasn’t wanting more either. This one is just straight down the middle for me. It’s not bad, but it’s not good.
