"Courtney Summers's powerful story of love, neglect, abuse, and revenge is narrated with irresistible urgency by Rebecca Soler and Dan Bittner, along with an ensemble of supporting narrators...this is a production that will not be forgotten" ?? AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner

An innovative audiobook production featuring more than thirty voices, Sadie explores the depth of a sister's love ?? poised to be the next story listeners won't be able to pause.

A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial??like podcast following the clues she's left behind.

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' Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep listeners riveted until the last chapter.

I feel so spoiled now because listening to this on audiobook ruined regular audiobooks for me. The full cast was absolutely fantastic (sans the minor voice of Paul) and made this already gripping story come completely alive. "Sadie" hooked me right from the first chapter and kept on pulling me deeper into the pages. It's a really dark story at times but superbly crafted and full of full-bodied characters; I found myself rooting for Sadie and totally immersed in her plight. This book is going to stay with me for a long time to come, and I highly recommended checking it out. ( )

At the time I’m writing this review, it’s been a couple of days since I finished Sadie, and I still haven’t fully processed it. This is one of those stories that seeps into your bones somewhere along the way, and it changes the way you look at the world a little. It is the best mystery—and one of the best books, period—that I have ever read, and it is also one of the bleakest, most devastating reading experiences of my life. If you have read any of my reviews then you know I am very picky with what I choose to pick up. I actually saw this on a BookTube channel and Chelsea did such a good job convincing me that this story is worth the time that I had to pick it up.

You know, going into this story, that Sadie’s little sister’s body has just been found, and Sadie is on a mission to track down the man she believes is responsible. Besides the fact that it’s a story partially told through podcast episodes (which is such an incredible touch), that’s all you really need to know. This isn’t about what happens so much as it is about coming to know and love Sadie—and to know and love Mattie, too, through her memories. It’s about recognizing that the society we live in has this terrifying, grimy layer that nobody wants to talk about, where little girls are never really safe, and children are forced to grow up way too fast, to become adults in replacement of the parents they didn’t ask for. Most of all it touched me to the core because it is so believable that it could easily happen to so many of todays young children.

With a mother suffering from addiction, a community that looked the other way far too many times, and a life of barely keeping food on the table, much less having any real opportunities to succeed, Sadie feels like such an old soul. I don’t know how many readers will struggle to relate to the age of her inner monologue, but from another woman whose circumstances never quite allowed me to feel like a child, I saw so much of myself in the cynical, pragmatic way Sadie views the world around her. I am not niave to the world around me I know that my mother did an awesome job with me and my sister but I was never really accepted by others easily.

It’s hard enough to grow up poor and in a broken family, but Sadie’s also queer—she doesn’t label herself, but explains her sexuality in ways that heavily point to pansexuality—and she stutters, which forms a barricade between her and the rest of the world. Her representation feels so valid and genuine, and it broke my heart every time she mused about how imprisoned she felt by her struggles with speech.

More than anything else about Sadie’s character, though, I loved the fierce, maternal determination she has for taking care of Mattie—and, once Mattie is gone, for finding her killer and dishing out justice. Every memory of Mattie, whether told through her view of their adopted grandmother May Beth’s, is beautiful and haunting. The tremendous amount of guilt that Sadie carries as she blames herself for what went wrong had me completely breaking down in passages, and I’ll admit without shame that I read the last several chapters through tears. The most brutal part of it all is that, somehow, it feels like Sadie’s story could be based on a real girl—no, on countless real girls, all over the world.

Without spoiling the plot, I want to warn you that this book focuses heavily on child abuse and sexual assault, and it is broken down in the most honest, agonizing ways. There’s also a solid portrayal of how deceptive abusers can be, as the abusers in question are shown to have fooled so many people. But there’s also another side to the representation here, as we see Sadie’s intense solidarity with other abused girls, and her desperate need to protect and defend them, even though (perhaps especially though) she feels that she failed to protect and defend her sister.

There’s not much else I can tell you now, because I think it’s the kind of story that you should go into without too many expectations. Just climb in, let Sadie take you for a ride and tell you her story, and try not to let your heart get too broken in the process. This is a phenomenal story, and I know that I will be thinking about it for a long, long time to come.

This is a really sad and disturbing story.

I did not like how repetitive it was. Readers experience the story two ways -- through the transcript of a podcast about Sadie and through the first-person narration of Sadie herself. I theory this should add something, but it felt mostly overlapping and repetitive to me.

I listened to the audiobook. I liked most of the voice actors, but some of them were comparatively terrible. This is a common pitfall of full cast audio IMO.

I stayed up way too late finishing this, so points for riveting. But it left me feeling terrible and unsatisfied. I think that may be the point. Books about murder and child abuse should not be fun. Still, I can't say I liked this. Recommended for readers who appreciate dark crime fiction and revenge stories. ( )

I'm still not sure about my rating, I'm going back and forth between 3.5 and 4 stars. I read this book in one sitting and while it was engaging enough to keep me turning the pages, there were some downsides for me. I'll start with what I liked. I did like the writing style, I liked that it was told between podcast episodes, interviews, and Sadie's POV. The podcast episodes and interviews were the most interesting part for me, and I kind of wish the entire book was written this way. I didn't know anything about this book going into, except that it's a mystery/thriller that a lot of people love and it's gotten a lot of great reviews. That's all I knew, I didn't even read the synopsis. I didn't know about the themes and topics in this book, which are very heavy, but those are the type of contemporary books I love. CW for sexual abuse, addiction, and death of a child.

I think this book is well written and does a great job with these topics. The journalist, Wes, had some interesting development and I like what he says at the end about why he didn't want to take this story in the first place. "Ignorance is bliss. I was afraid of what I wouldn't find and afraid of what I would." I feel like that's how we all are sometimes. It's just easier to ignore some things, especially if it doesn't involve/effect you personally, cause then we don't have to face the reality of just how messed up our world really is.

Now for some of the downsides. I feel like the characters were not fleshed out enough. Sadie was the most fleshed out, but everyone else, even Wes felt flat. Also, Sadie was traveling through different cities and towns, so why is it whenever they described a character they were always white? It was an old white woman or a young white woman/girl. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only character I remember that wasn't white was Javi who has light brown skin.

Lastly, I would have liked to have a clearer ending. I'm not a fan of open endings, and I like to have proper closure from my books, so this ending didn't do it for me. I want to know one way or another, did Sadie die? Either tell me she did or she didn't, but don't leave it a mystery.

So I guess I'm sticking with 3.5 stars. ( )
