Hello friends and happy Friday!
First off, moment to freak out because tomorrow is December and we’re that much closer to Christmas! Yay! Ok, and now we’re back. I’m a bit excited about today’s COTW because they are such an interesting character on so many levels. They’re not necessarily a character that makes me happy or fills me with love and rainbows, but they’re a character that makes me think. They make me wonder. But also, they make me a bit sad. No matter how they make me feel, I know that this is a character that everyone needs to meet because above all, they’re an important character.
This week’s character is…..
WHO IS THIS CHARACTER?
If you haven’t read one of the best releases of 2018, Sadie by Courtney Summers, drop what you’re doing and go read it. Seriously. Go do it. I’ll wait. If you have read it, then you know that Sadie is the main character in this mystery/thriller that essentially follows her on a mission to find the man that’s responsible for killing her little sister, and killing him herself. Sadie isn’t the typical character I’ve been to choose for COTW but, as I’ve said, she’s a pretty important character. She represents so many things that it’s hard to pinpoint the most important ones but she, for the most part, represents strength. She has strength in not letting her stutter define her life, strength in how she stepped in to more of a parental role for her little sister after their mom took off, and strength in her resourcefulness and ruthlessness. The book follows her on a “road trip” to kill the man who murdered her sister and that shows the reader immediately how ruthless she can be. She’s not afraid to do something like this, not afraid to face the demon that’s been haunting her for years and then went on to haunt her sister. A lot about Sadie breaks my heart, in addition to haunting me to my inner core, but to see everything she’s gone through and continues to go through kills me. I don’t want to give too much away about her character because she’s someone you really need to discover on your own, but I still want to emphasize how imporant she is. She’s tough, she’s smart, she’s clever, and she’s unbelievably strong. I’ll be thinking about Sadie Hunter for many years to come.
