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.

Exceptional Storytelling & A New Favorite

This was probably one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to. Though I don't listen to much so the bar is set high for me now. The voice for Sadie did an excellent job with her stutter and capturing the emotion of suppressed teenage rage. This whole audiobook was phenomenal! I finished it in less time than I expected because I was both disturbed and compelled. The entire cast was believable and the story... the STORY was the best written story I've read in a long time. It has a nice blend of both thriller and mystery. Adult Thriller writers ought to take notes.

This is a book that has to be listened to.

The story is very good (although heartbreaking), but the performance blew me away. Brilliant audiobook

That’s how it ends??

Enjoyed it until the very unfulfilling end. Feel like the story never finished. Hate books like this.

Loved everything about the story.

Stunningly written, LOVED every minute of it , very unexpected ending.
A breath of fresh air the way the story is told by both Sadie and the journalist doing the podcast of the story.

Heavy, Haunting, and Unforgettable

This story was simply amazing. I’m still thinking about that brave girl and the lengths she was willing to go to to find justice for her sister. This book is haunting and unforgettable.

Great audiobook, story itself a bit lacking.

I found the audiobook incredibly done, the cast was fantastic, yet the story somehow fell flat for me.

Wow, what a story!

At first I believe this would be a cliche mystery novel with predictable plot. However, it anything but predictable. The audio version of this book is insane and the story flows so effortlessly.
