The unique concept and style is absolutely stellar. I was completely captivated, even when I didn’t want to be.
This is a YA suspense story about Sadie, a teenager who goes missing after her 13-year old sister is murdered. It’s told in two unique, alternating parts. One part is Sadie’s POV, right up until the point at which she officially disappears. The other part is a missing person’s podcast, presented just like an investigative story, as the podcaster travels, researches, and interviews people trying to piece together what might have happened to Sadie.
This story is dark, ugly, emotional, and gut-wrenching, but you won’t be able to look away. It reminds me a bit of watching those hour long investigative shows that I grew up with as a child, where they try to track down answers to unsolved mysteries, murders, and disappearances.
The unique style lends itself well to an audiobook format, so I highly recommend this book on audio.
