Review: Sadie

Author: Courtney Summers. 
Genre: Mystery, Thriller, New Adult. 
Rating: đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«

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.

I think the cover might be just a tad bit misleading. Like, I didn't realize it was a mystery thriller until I read the synopsis. Though I don't think that's a bad thing, it's just different. The cover looks more like that of a YA book than that of a mystery thriller. 


The parts of the book that I enjoyed the most were the ones from Sadie's point of view. They were much more engaging than the counterpart. 

Though I can't exactly complain because the other parts are narrated in the form of a podcast series and they're supposed to be distant and unconnected. 

The storyline itself was pretty exciting, full of tense, suspenseful moments. 

Sadie's character was flawed and unique, and though the end irked me a bit, I know it was the best possible ending. 

All in all, Sadie was a quick, intense read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
