Book Review: Sadie

Sadie by Courtney Summers is a book that will stick with me for some time. It's a YA thriller/mystery, but it has loads of subjects and triggers that range from YA to adult: drug abuse, murder, sexual abuse, pedophilia, rape, rural issues and poverty, etc. It is not just your run of the mill easy … Continue reading Book Review: Sadie
