Thanks to Wednesday Books/Macmillan for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
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 meagre 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.

I finished Sadie the other day and I’m glad to say that I gave it 5 stars!! There’s so much about this book that I think makes it one of the most memorable reads I’ve read this year and I’m here to tell you some things you should about Sadie and why you should read it!
