Badass Book Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

“And it begins, as so many stories do, with a dead girl.”
As a new book blogger, I was thrilled to receive Sadie as my first physical ARC! I’m addicted to e-books, but every true book nerd knows there’s nothing like having an actual book in your hands every once in a while.
After I read the blurb I knew I was in for an awesome summer read. I love a good thriller so I couldn’t wait to dive in!
This is the first book I’ve read by Courtney Summers and it left me a bit heartbroken, and appropriately so. This isn’t a happily-ever-after, although, I’m not sure the story could have or rather, should have, ended any other way. Its overall theme is pretty much a tragedy. Sadie knows nothing except to live for her sister Maddie.
Sadie is not just well-written, it is very uniquely written. Alternating between Sadie’s POV as she tracks down the mystery surrounding her sister’s murder, and a transcript-like narrative of a podcast showcasing Sadie and Maddie’s story, you’re able to piece together the story from every possible angle and see it from the point of view of everyone involved.
