Canadian author, Courtney Summers, takes readers on a dark journey—weaving between the story of a troubled teenage girl seeking justice for her young sister’s murder, and the details of a podcast that help fill in the story’s gaps. Sadie’s drive for revenge is understood within the context of childhood trauma, addiction, and abuse, navigating this narrative of one girl’s quest to hunt down the man who once hurt her and killed her sister. Appropriate for senior secondary students, “Sadie” is suitable in literature circles or as an independent novel choice. The book’s unique format lends itself well to creative writing opportunities or to explore the usage of media in literature. Log in to read the full review.
