Sadie is an electrifying, high-stakes road trip. Clear your schedule. You're not going anywhere until you've reached the end. --Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of There's Someone Inside Your House and Anna and the French Kiss

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. Now with special bonus material!

"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, Courtney Summers' 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.
