Sadie

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.

 

The only thing that is disappointing about this book is that Sadie remained missing. It was a very interesting read to follow how she tracked Keith and to see how far she would go out of the love she had for her sister.  This book is very true to life (I believe) in that some of the worst people can appear so kind and unfortunately parents are often so overwhelmed by life that they don’t notice the small changes in their children.
