Waiting On Wednesday [@courtney_s @WednesdayBooks @StMartinsPress]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:

SADIE by Courtney Summers

"Summers has pulled no punches when it comes to diving into the darker side of teen lives." —Bustle

A gripping novel about the depth of a sister's love; poised to be the next book you won't be able to stop talking about.

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 has written the breakout book of her career. Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep you riveted until the last page.

I really love Courtney Summers writing (my reviews of her previous books). They are not easy stories and they will tear you up or make you want to rage at the world or cry for their characters - or some combination of all three - but that, actually, is why I do love them. They are real and honest and can be heartbreaking and sardonic. They make you think about things you do need to think about. Instead of glossing over the messy, painful bits, that's where they focus.

That they're calling Sadie, "the breakout book of her career," makes me that much more eager to read it!

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
