If You Tell: A True Story of Murder by Gregg Olsen

CLICK ON IMAGE FOR FULL REVIEW







BOOK DESCRIPTION
A #1 Wall Street Journal, Amazon Charts, USA Today, and Washington Post bestseller.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen’s shocking and empowering true-crime story of three sisters determined to survive their mother’s house of horrors.
After more than a decade, when sisters Nikki, Sami, and Tori Knotek hear the word mom, it claws like an eagle’s talons, triggering memories that have been their secret since childhood. Until now.
For years, behind the closed doors of their farmhouse in Raymond, Washington, their sadistic mother, Shelly, subjected her girls to unimaginable abuse, degradation, torture, and psychic terrors. Through it all, Nikki, Sami, and Tori developed a defiant bond that made them far less vulnerable than Shelly imagined. Even as others were drawn into their mother’s dark and perverse web, the sisters found the strength and courage to escape an escalating nightmare that culminated in multiple murders.
Harrowing and heartrending, If You Tell is a survivor’s story of absolute evil—and the freedom and justice that Nikki, Sami, and Tori risked their lives to fight for. Sisters forever, victims no more, they found a light in the darkness that made them the resilient women they are today—loving, loved, and moving on.

MY REVIEW

I don’t know how the author managed to delve deeply enough into such a horrifying situation to write a book about it. My stomach was in a knot the whole time I was attempting to read it. (I couldn’t get through it.)

Just gut-wrenching.

Exceptionally well written, but just too painful. Reads like a novel. If only.

HOT TIP: If others on your Amazon account also get a First Reads book, you can “share” through your family library and get access to multiple free books!

SECOND HOT TIP: If you have kids, I very strongly recommend you get this month’s First Reads children’s book, This Book is Gray. It’s the best First Reads book I’ve ever come across. And an antidote to the horror of this one.
