A missing girl on a journey of revenge. A Serial—like podcast following the clues she's left behind. And an ending you won't be able to stop talking about.

“Today, WNRK is launching the first episode of our new serialized podcast, The Girls, created and hosted by West McCray.”

When popular radio personality West McCray receives a desperate phone call from a stranger imploring him to find nineteen-year-old runaway Sadie Hunter, he’s not convinced there’s a story there; girls go missing all the time. But when it’s revealed that Sadie fled home after the brutal murder of her little sister, Mattie, West travels to the small town of Cold Creek, Colorado, to uncover what happened.

Sadie has no idea that her journey to avenge her sister will soon become the subject of a blockbuster podcast. Armed with a switchblade, Sadie follows meager clues hoping they’ll lead to the man who took Mattie’s life, because she’s determined to make him pay with his own. But as West traces her path to the darkest, most dangerous corners of big cities and small towns, a deeply unsettling mystery begins to unfold—one that’s bigger than them both. Can he find Sadie before it’s too late?

Alternating between Sadie’s unflinching voice as she hunts the killer and the podcast transcripts tracking the clues she’s left behind, Sadie is a breathless thriller about the lengths we go to protect the ones we love and the high price we pay when we can’t. It will haunt you long after you reach the final page.

Good book… Not for young adults tho

I found out about this from a booktuber who suggested this to get out of a reading slump. Boy did it ever help! I couldn’t put it down! It sucked me in. Though after reading it I will say the them is VERY dark and wouldn’t consider it to be for young adults. I also did not enjoy the end. I do however think it was a great read for anyone into true crime “fiction”. All around, loved it, would suggest to others. Just be warned the subject is dark.

Danger is normal!?

This book was…enjoyable? But there were a few things that bothered me. The way the book was constructed, switching back and forth between a podcast and the MC’s perspective back in time, was probably the only redeeming quality of this book. She continuously put herself in danger to find out what happened to her sister, who was MURDERED! Like, why are we normalizing putting yourself in danger and taking the law into your own hands? Now, I could see this being okay if what happened to her sister was different than being killed, like maybe she was kidnapped or something? Or even if she went to the cops at some point and there was a dynamic where she was helping them but she was doing all this herself. The ending was just bad, not sure what happened to her and there were so many questions and I just didn’t like it. 1 star is for the way the book was constructed and 1 star was for the audiobook because it was fantastic. For a book like this, the author could have done other things to promote things better since it’s a YA book. Hopefully the author does better in the future :) 2/5 stars
