This book effing broke me. I cried for every girl. (TW in spoiler tag.) The full-cast audio recording was brilliant, down to the MC‘s stutter. The ending is open, fair warning.

Sadie‘s sister has been murdered, and Sadie has left to avenge it. The book alternates between Sadie‘s narration and journey to find this man, and a Serial-like fictional podcast looking into Sadie‘s disappearance. Brilliant, but sad.

Interesting book. I enjoyed the format - part podcast part told from the main character. Very well written story. The ending left me wanting as I like things wrapped up with a neat bow - and this story does not end this way. I am glad that I heard about this book on currently reading podcast and checked it out.

Megabooks I‘m reading this now. 7d

So you know what I said like an hour ago about thrillers, well, I didn‘t realize this was a mystery/thriller.

However! It follows a Serial-like podcast about a #missing girl and her dead sister. Loving the full-cast #audiobook! I‘m a sucker for those. 😉

My dad and I loved Serial when we were driving to/from Dallas for my last spinal fusion. It was my first foray into podcasts.

#ayupaugust

tjwill I loved the format of this one too! If you like Serial and Sadie, also try the podcast Up and Vanished: it is investigative reporting about missing persons. 7d

Tough subject but very well done. I enjoy epistolary novels, and this format is very similar, plus doing it on audio was perfect, given the podcast setting. I don‘t always enjoy a full cast; it sometimes feels too busy, but the interview style made it work well. Very This American Life, Hidden Brain, Radiolab, etc.

Tense is the main word that comes to mind for this one. I finished this last night and it's still lingering in my thoughts a day later. This is billed as YA but it felt more adult to me.
The format worked well (switching between Sadie's POV and crime podcast); each chapter left me wanting just a bit more. And the ending - I've seen a few complaints that it wasn't definitive enough but I found it very fitting

TrishB I thought the ending fitted, but would have liked it to be different if that makes sense! 2w

Exceptionally well done, suspense although not entirely unpredictable. I read the audiobook with my daughter, 14, and got to experience some of the edge of the seat through her, which made it all the better. Hard to recommend in a general sense, as it has a dark theme. Mostly listening on our way back from Montréal, dropping off girls as we drove (safely, with their parents) then stayed up late to finish it last night.

Tense and gritty revenge plot thriller following Sadie as she hunts her sisters killer and West McCray as his podcast follows Sadie‘s trail. ‘In Mattie, Sadie found a sense of purpose, a place to put her love. But love is complicated, it‘s messy. It can inspire selflessness, selfishness, our greatest accomplishments and our hardest mistakes. It brings us together and it can just as easily drive us apart. It can drive us.‘

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed this book and so glad I got the Audio version! It was neat listening to the back and forth of the POV of Sadie and a news investigator/podcast type style. Murder mystery which I don‘t think I‘ve ever read. Overall I enjoyed it and it was a fast read.

I'm stopping both of these at the halfway point. Front Desk I really like but my digitally library loan expired and it disappeared, hopefully I can finish it later in the summer. Sadie, for all the amazing things I've heard, isn't quite what I was expecting. My favorite part is honestly the cover art. This is just going to a dark place I can't handle right now, and I'm not interested enough in the mystery or the writing to get me to keep reading.

Megabooks Definitely love the cover of Sadie!! 1mo

A girl gone missing after her sister is found dead. Half the story is told from the POV of the missing girl. The other half is in the form of a podcast - at first I thought it gimmicky but its a v effective device that reveals more details to the reader. Would be a great audiobook! A quick read, Sadie is suspenseful and moving. This is the first book from Summers that I‘ve read but now I‘d love to read more.

"Sadie" was the first book I picked up for summer reading. At first, I was really excited to read this novel. But as I read reviews my excitement waned, there were multiple that said it was underwhelming/disappointing. I almost DNFed this book, but I'm glad I didn't set it aside. and I felt goes in a direction where most YA books don't usually follow. This is not a book for people who like neat little endings. #truecrime #thumbsup #summerreading

FANTASTIC audiobook--I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it nearly as much had I picked up the print copy. The narrators did a great job capturing the gritty and raw emotions packed within this, and I adored the podcast-like format.

Know that this does have some pretty significant TWs for those who would need to know (I won't mention them here because I consider one to be a huge spoiler, so make sure to research if needed). #audio

Unpopular opinion.

I've seen lots of love for this book, but sadly it was just okay for me. Incorporating the podcast was interesting and I felt it was great addition to this YA book since teens use so many different forms of social media. In fact, I enjoyed the podcast sections more than Sadie's.

The story is intriguing, but I never felt a connection to the characters so it made the story drag a bit for me.

Brilliant, disturbing, scary, yet moving exploration of sisterly love, troubled families, murder, revenge, and abuse.

The format of this (two timelines and perspectives) was highly effective in keeping me engaged and made this work really well as an audiobook.

Sadie is a truly fascinating character and the slow reveal of information added so many layers to this seemingly simple plot: find Mattie‘s killer and kill him.

Highly recommend.

I‘m about half way through Sadie and I‘m really enjoying the read! The formatting is different, half the chapters are in pod cast format. Those chapters fly by for me! The chapters from Sadie‘s point of view are a little long, which isn‘t my favorite because I hate when I have to stop a chapter half way through! But overall I‘m enjoying this read!

This book needs to be read with audiobook or in that format.At the beginning was ok but then it intrigued me.A sad story with an unwanted ending but it is what we usually see in social reality. Writing format was so creative. However, I don't think each narrator voice was a perfect matched with each character personality including Sadie's voice.I don't imagine Sadie with that voice tone.I know, sounds weird🤔3.5/3.6⭐️It was an ok YA thriller.

Tamra I think that is why I bailed on the audio. 3mo

It was a very enjoyable story. I listened to the audiobook! All of the readers were awesome! Though, the story kind of has a tragic feel to it. It is a mystery and the whole time it switches between the narrative Sadie and the people that came across her. Never know where the story is going and it is a fascinating tale.

This beautiful view doesn't evoke the book's contents, unfortunately. It's a tough read filled with signs of abuse, drugs, alcohol, and violence--nothing too explicitly described. However, it's a fast-paced journey with a sad mystery. Well-written, & I enjoyed the podcast transcripts. I saw that you can listen to the actual podcasts on Macmillan's website, so I'll have to check that out. Definitely recommend if you can handle all the triggers.
