Sadie Blog Tour: Q&A

Beyond thrilled to be taking part in the official blog tour for Sadie by Courtney Summers today :D I loved this book so very much. It also pretty much broke me. So good. Been a fan of Courtney for years; she is such a great author and such an amazing person. I adore her to pieces. Her books are so so good. If you have not been able to read Sadie just yet then you really really must get it when it comes out on Tuesday. This book is heartbreakingly good. You will love it, I promise. For my blog tour post today, I am sharing a Q&A with Courtney :D She answered three of my questions, eee. Thank you so much lovely. Huge thank you to Brittani and the publisher, Wednesday Books, for letting me take part in this awesome blog tour :) You can find my five star review of Sadie here. <3 Have you read any books by Courtney? Which ones?

Q&A with Courtney Summers.

1. Was there any part of Sadie that was emotionally painful to write about? The book was so good, but it ruined my heart.

Thank you! It means a lot to me that Sadie made an impact. There was not so much a specific scene, but Sadie’s story as a whole was tough to write. It can be difficult to occupy the emotional space required to explore a lot of the topics I do, but it’s more important to me that those stories be told.

2. The ending of the book killed me a little. Will you be sharing what happens next?

It’s unlikely, but I never say never. Sadie’s story, as it stands, feels complete to me.

3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?

I think Italy would be amazing. It looks like such a beautiful place. Also, let’s be real—the pasta!

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.
