Sadie Reviews

  • (Bern) Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas

    Sadie was everything I hoped she would be and more!

    "When Sadie lost Mattie, it drove her to leave her home in Cold Creek, to take on the loneliness and pain of all those miles, just to find her little sister's murderer and make the world right again, even, possibly, at the expense of herself."

    Sadie has had a hard life but nothing affects her more deeply than the murder of her sister. It was a horrific crime and it seems no one will answer for it. Sadie simply cannot accept that. She has nothin

    I finished this a few days ago but I’ve been putting off writing this review because I still don’t know how to accurately put my feelings about it into words. This book was hard. So fucking hard to read, but SO DAMN GOOD. If you think you can handle the subject matter I highly recommend.

    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

    "And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl."


    Sometimes the story isn’t about the dead 13-year-old girl, left in a field behind a burned out schoolhouse, but rather the disappearance of her nineteen-year-old sister. A girl that took on the mothering role when her own drunk and drugged out mother didn’t care enough to bother. An older sister that did everything in her power to keep her little sister safe . . . until that one moment she took a beat for herself and wasn’t there. One single night—a time out of sorts—that spelled goodbye.

    Armed with a switchblade to do the dirty work and driven by a thirst for revenge, Sadie sets out to find the monster responsible for killing her sister. She’s gutsy and reckless, but raw and so darn young. Left with a gaping hole her sister once occupied, will happiness ever be an option or is Sadie’s final act imminent?

    "I’m going to carve my name into his soul."


    It’s a podcaster that finds himself playing detective, piecing together Sadie’s disappearance for her pseudo-grandmother and his listeners—dueling Sadie’s timeline along the way. Initially denying there was even a story to tell—“Girls go missing all the time.”—until the evidence left him no choice but to succumb to the hunt.

    The truth is harsh, soul-crushing and just downright awful. I think we can all agree, there’s nothing worse than innocent children being hurt at the hands of a demon and even more so when their parents don’t care enough to pay attention. Knowing there are kids out there living this life right now, makes this story that much harder to stomach.

    Courtney Summers gives just enough of the story to make assumptions about the finale—all of the pieces are there, waiting to be assembled as the reader sees fit. My optimistic side liked that she left the door slightly cracked for the teeniest tiniest bit of hope to slip through—although probably extremely unlikely given the evidence—with the only other option being one no one wants to consider.

    I have to admit, there’s something truly engaging about the author’s style. There’s almost a quiet beauty to the way Courtney Summers strings thoughts together, while simultaneously working to keep the reader in the dark. A few times her words made me pause, reread and reflect—making it easy to see what all the fuss has been about. Like this lovely passage:

    "I wish this was a love story. A love story about lovers whose mouths meet like two puzzle pieces fitting perfectly into place, about the electric feeling of one person’s name on the other’s tongue because no one has ever spoken them out loud like that before. About people who spend the night together looking at the stars until entire constellations exist within them. Everyone is perfect in that indistinct way most characters are and every perfectly constructed scene in their fictional lives is somehow more real than anything you’ve known or lived."


    Regardless of the genre label, Sadie left a mark on my heart. To say that I’m a YA convert—not quite. A new Courtney Summers fan—yes!

    CW: Pedophilia, sexual abuse, drug abuse, murder

    4.5/5 stars

    This was a raw, emotional, and incredibly dark book. There are zero moments of levity and as someone who reads a lot of contemporary romances, it took a lot out of me to get through it. I am grateful that Courtney Summers did not sensationalize any of the abuse that went on before and during the events of this book. Though it's definitely present, it happens off of the page. She focuses on the toll it took on the victims rather than the

    Courtney Summers is a brilliant, wonderful, and horrible writer, who just carved my very heart out of my chest with mere words, and left me feeling numb, and empty, and shaking. And in complete awe and admiration.
