“I’m going to kill the man who killed my sister.”
Sadie is a stunning, heartbreaking read about a girl dead set on murdering the man who killed her little sister.
19-year-old Sadie only had one thing her life to love, which was her 13-year-old little sister, Mattie. Growing up in a trailer park in Colorado, she had to endure her mother’s drug abuse, neglect, and many boyfriends; some of whom were verbally, physically, and sexually abusive. But Sadie survived in order to protect Mattie. Sadly wh ...more
An abandoned, one room schoolhouse sits three miles outside of Cold Creek, taken by fire. The roof is caved in and what's left of the walls are charred. It sits next to an Apple orchard. The body of Maddie Southern was discovered between the burning schoolhouse and the Apple orchard just out of sight. She's been missing for three days earlier and she was found there dead. She was only thirteen years old. Mattie left behind a nineteen year old sister, Sadie, a surrogate grandmother, May Beth, and ...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
Powerful, compelling, & heartbreaking!
I have enjoyed YA stories in the past but in my opinion I think this book is geared to a much wider audience than just teens.
SADIE by COURTNEY SUMMERS is a memorable, important, and a fantastic YA mystery novel that immediately grabbed my attention and had me glued to those pages right to the very end.
Sadie's story was not an easy read as it delves deep into Sadie's pain and some tough subject matter. But, I thought that the author handled it with such ...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
Every now and then, I stumble upon a book that makes me wish to heap violence on my vocabulary, to wrench away words like “good” and “amazing” and excavate something more genuine, more raw, more appropriate to the experience of reading it.
Sadie splintered in my heart, and I’m sure the author meant it to. I finished it, shivering with a chill inside me that nothing could possibly drive away. It’s been days and I still can’t swallow past the unaccountable lump in my throat. But I guess that’s just ...more
"It's sad when people don't realize their worth."
WOW! Reading this book is like being sucker punched by sadness.
Sadie has lived a sad life. She is frequently teased for her stutter. She has no idea who her father is. Her Mother is an addict who had a bevy of boyfriends rotating in and out of their lives. Some of which are happy to ignore Sadie and her younger sister, Mattie. Unfortunately, there was one boyfriend who gave way too much attention. Sadie has basically raised not only herself, but h ...more
