Publisher's Summary

An innovative audiobook production featuring more than 30 voices, Sadie explores the depth of a sister's love - poised to be the next story listeners won't be able to pause.

A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she's left behind.

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 meager 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.

Courtney Summers' Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep listeners riveted until the last track.

Critic Reviews

"A haunting, gut-wrenching, and relentlessly compelling read. Sadie grabs you and won't let you go until you've borne witness." (Veronica Roth, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Carve the Mark and the Divergent series)

"An electrifying thriller, taut as a bowstring. A coming-of-age tale, both gritty and sensitive. A poignant drama of love and loss. This - all this - is Sadie: a novel for readers of any age, and a character as indelible as a scar. Flat-out dazzling." (A.J. Finn, number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Woman in the Window)

"Courtney Summers's powerful story of love, neglect, abuse, and revenge is narrated with irresistible urgency by Rebecca Soler and Dan Bittner, along with an ensemble of supporting narrators...this is a production that will not be forgotten." (AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner)

Brilliant, Courtney Summers, author to follow

Couldn't get Sadie out of my mind. I wept and stayed up all night to finish this book. If you get one audio book this year, it's this.

This is a book that has to be listened to.

Life Changing

This was the first audiobook i have ever listened to and it blew me away. The full cast was amazing and the way the podcast within the story was recorded felt like i was actually listening to one.
I became so engrossed in the story and following Sadie’s story. The ending left me torn apart but it’s ok... I’m ok...
There was so much depth and you became connected with all of the characters - which the full cast helped immensely.
If you are contemplating listening to this... DO

I’m glad I listened to the audiobook

I think having Sadie in this format adds to the books emotion and suspense. There’s an extra layer to the haunt of who Sadie is after and what really happened.

I really enjoyed it

The story was well developed and I really liked how it was told from two different perspectives. Just wish it had been longer.

Was Sadie ever found?

Very haunting book that left me feeling sad to.not know what happened to Sadie😟. We are very aware of all the exploited, missing people in our world. This book gave some insight into the how and why people just take off to find someone and never return.
