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.

Review:
This feels like a hard review to write.
This is someone's real life events. This is their life growing up and beyond. This is one harrowing story that is so real it's terrifying.
As a mother, I cannot fathom Shelley and her antics. She obviously is mentally ill, maybe schizophrenic, not that I'm making excuses for her. Still, how could she do any of these things to her children?!
I immediately thought of Mommie Dearest.
Except this was real, and maybe even more sadistic with friends and family being murdered. It's almost surreal.
I'm literally scared for when this woman gets out of prison in a couple years. If her and her husband hook back up, people are screwed. He's so weak, he'd probably go right back to her.
I really hope the author keeps up with the sisters and keeps us all posted as to what happens in a few years. My money is on Nikki, Sami and Tori, but still my mind will be abuzz with wonder.
A tragic, intense but great read. One I highly recommend to true crime fans.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
