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.

Canada is known for some pretty spectacular things: Health Care, Maple Syrup, Poutine...But, to me, what makes Canada most notable is its talent in the literary world. We've got Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, Alice Munro but most brag-worthy is Courtney Summers. A strong female author that writes books that will shake you to your core. She tackles subjects that some shy away from. She gets raw and gritty and isn't afraid to go there. Courtney Summers makes me proud to be Canadian.

Sadie is a heartwrenching tale about a girl on the hunt for her sisters killer. Delivered, outstandingly, in dual perspective: the first being in podcast format and the second coming from Sadie herself. It is a sad story about a girl seeking vengeance for her dead sister. Sadie's pain bleeds from the pages and will leave you heartbroken for her. Like her previous work, Summers has a flawless writing style. Her story development draws you in immediately and will never let you go. Summers crafts a small but in-depth character cast in Sadie. Each character adds their own valuable puzzle piece to this dark and mysterious story. Summers surely captures the emotional tone of this novel. It will have you questioning whats right and wrong, and how you would handle Sadie's situation. This story isn't just about Sadie, it is also about a journalist that is willing to go to the ends of the earth to find out what happened to her and to Mattie. To give Sadie a voice and to tell her story. In a way, it's a triumphant story.  

Courtney Summers has done it again, but really, I had no doubt whatsoever. Her books, her characters nestle themselves deep into my heart and hold space there until the very last page and long after.

    Gold WhatsApp: - The use of e-mail has gradually been limited since the emergence of WhatsApp in 2009. Also, because it provided the same services of sending files, conversations and calls, but WhatsApp added to it a set of features and uses. Also, in addition to being easier and faster to use, then instead of the application, message additions and a lot of features and things, a view was well received before, so the application allows downloading cases, hiding appearances, messages and a lot of other features.
