Sadie | Courtney Summers | ca. 8 Stunden | Hörbuch 


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.
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 meager 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.

[Monatsrückblick] Februar 2019


Nachdem der Januar irgendwie gar nicht vergehen wollte, ist der Februar an mir vorbeigerast. Ich weiß gar nicht, wo die Zeit geblieben ist. Mein Februar war am meisten davon geprägt, dass ich gehofft habe, die eine blöde Klausur bestanden zu haben. Ich habe die Seite der Prüfungsergebnisse im Stundentakt aktualisiert und ihr glaubt gar nicht, wie groß die Erleichterung war, als das Ergebnis endlich online war und ich den grünen Kreis gesehen habe. Daraufhin habe ich mich erstmal entspannt, bis mir Ende Februar meine eine Hausarbeit eingefallen ist, die Mitte März fällig ist und ich habe noch nicht mal mit dem Schreiben begonnen. Die ersten zwei Märzwochen werden jetzt also erstmal ziemlich stressig.
