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 got Sadie by Courtney Summers as an arc, all thoughts are my own. I really enjoyed and loved reading Sadie. I rated this a five out of five stars, I just wish there was a pov over what happened to Sadie even though you can guess by what happens at the end. I really love going back in between the two pov’s the podcast and Sadie’s. I also like how at the beginning of a new episode of the podcast it said: “Announcer: The Girls is brought to you by Macmillan Publishers”.
Pg. 2 I read the first two pages (second page only had a few lines); but from reading those two I could tell this would be an interesting book. I like the idea of a main story line or plot is a podcast. I used to listen to a podcast a few years ago. I feel like I might really love this once I’m finished.
Pg 13. “and I’ll just say I figured she was dead. I just knew. That weird, isn’t it-that I just knew?” I don’t think it’s weird, I’ve had the feeling to and here recently. In July there was this girl in my state, she was twenty years old and went missing. She got murdered that day in July. When I first saw her missing person’s photos I had this gut wrenching feeling she died that same day.
