this is not a lighthearted story. if you are wanting a book that ends with a ‘happy ever after,’ then i suggest you look elsewhere. because you wont find it in these pages, between these words.
what you will find is a story about the lengths a girl will go to protect her sister and the high prices she pays when she cant.
this book is rough, and disturbing, and ultimately numbing. courtney summers has taken the somewhat morbid fascination society has with true crime and created a novel just as gr ...more
An easy 5 stars to Sadie. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Don’t miss her story.
I’m sure you’ve seen this book around the blogosphere or Goodreads, and more than likely you’ve noticed the praise showered upon it. All absolutely, positively well-deserved. Please read on and let me introduce you to Sadie, an unforgettable, tenderly drawn character.
Sadie’s dad has never been around, and her mom walked out and left her as a teen to raise her younger sister, Mattie. They live in a deserted town in a trailer park where an ...more
“I don’t know why this is the thing I choose to say out loud because it hurts to say it, to feel the truth of those words pass my lips, to have them be real in this world. But she’s dead is the reason I’m still alive. She’s dead is the reason I’m going to kill a man.”
Sadie is worth all the praise and hype you’ve heard about it. I had a feeling I was going to love this book, but I didn’t know that I would give it a piece of my heart. This is such a bright light in 2018 releases, and even thou ...more
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.
And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl.
You know, goin ...more

To say I’m not much of a YA reader is underplaying reality a bit. To say that I’m extremely choosy, ready to renege at the first sign of any juvenile antics and pretty much dragging my feet through the first few chapters, when I do finally cave, is all too accurate. My point being, if you’ve hesitated to pick up Sadie because you don’t frequent YA reads, let those preconceived notions go and take a chance. Live life through Sadie’s eyes—I'm betting you won’t regret it. Hers is a bleak and tormen ...more

She was only thirteen years old. Mattie left behind a nineteen year old sister, Sadie, a surrogate grandmother, May Beth, and ...more
