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.
