Book: Sadie
Author: Courtney Summers

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.-Goodreads

Review: I'm not a huge audiobook person but I saw that several people recommended this as an audiobook and I'm so glad I listened to it. I really enjoyed this book about a missing teenage girl and the radio guy investigating her story months later. Told in alternating narratives, we follow Sadie (an absolutely heart breaking character) as she searches for the man she believes to be responsible for murdering her sister) and West McCray (the radio guy) who has a podcast investigating what happened. McCray's sections are literally recorded like a podcast so it was a unique experience. 

Overall-well crafted and engaging. 

Grade: 4/5
