If she dies, she takes the truth with her. – The hook line that seems to be the focal point in advertising the upcoming YA Thriller Sadie by Courtney Summers. I initially discovered this novel through an advertisement that popped up on my Instagram feed inviting people to sign up for a free ARC (advance readers copy). I was intrigued enough from the bit of information on the book through the advertisement that I signed up. Now I’m not sure if everyone who did received a copy, but I was thrilled when a copy showed up at my PO Box just the other day. While this is Summers’ sixth novel, I personally had never heard of her before.

If such a book existed, then we wouldn’t need so many of them out there. We would all just lean on that one book to inspire and guide us in some sort of Stepford Wives-esque path. Instead we all have a beautiful unique path to take in life. Kristen Martin touches on this in Chapter 11 of her latest release, Be Your Own #Goals, reminding us that, “Our experiences are unique to each and every one of us.” So keep in mind while you might read a book and find it to be utterly crap, someone else might read that same personal development book and find it to be simply amazing.
