- If You Tell: A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood, by Gregg Olsen - 09/08/20
I liked this book. I hesitate to say I "enjoyed" it since it goes into great deal horrific torture of children and adults. By the end, though, I realized that I went on this journey with no explanations at the end: no analysis of the main perpetrator and taking her main accomplice at face value ("I did what Shelly told me to do") when he is documented as, if not instigating, at least fully participating and straight-up committing one murder on is own. And then there are the daughters: The author does not seem to have interviewed them about their transitions once they were out of the house -- did they get therapy? What is the relationship like with their father knowing that grown-ass adults should know the difference between right and wrong and protect their children? How did they learn to trust other adults and themselves as parents? The oldest, Nikki, is all of a sudden married, a teacher, with children, and I find that a HUGE, fascinating leap. I would have preferred the redundant details of the abuse reduced and the majority of the book to be the aftermath.

I read all the time, yet this list doesn't reflect that. I read the Express weekly, I read trashy magazines at the gym, and yes, I read a lot of comics. I think I just read slower than I used to.
