This is the first book I have read like this and it won’t be my last. Sometimes truth is scarier than fiction. Sometimes you just can’t make this stuff up. When I first read the synopsis of this book I just had to know more. It is one of those that will hook you before you have even started the book. This is not my typical genre choice, but I couldn’t help myself and once I started it was all over. I read this so fast because I wanted all the details to come

Jodie's Review

“The problem is, bullies can stop doing what they’re doing, but if you take over where they leave off, and you let the scars continue, you let them alter your self-worth, your personal truth, your identity, then it’s over. Let me tell you, she tried to take you down, but by God, you’re still here.”

I started this book wanting to give myself something different than I was use to. How much different than a real life crime book. I was excited that this was set in Orange County CA and

Kelli Peters lived in Orange County, California, and had one of those seemingly normal lives like most PTA Moms do. You know, she loves and took care of her family, drove in the carpool, and volunteered at her Daughters School from time to time. The normal kinds of things Parents do.

Little did Kelli know, one day she would end up in a conspiracy just because the parents of another child, Jill and Kent Easter, were upset because their Son had been kept waiting. Allegedly mind you.

This is a great, captivating story. Unfortunately the writing is pretty bad and extremely repetitive.

I admit that I must be the only person over fetus-hood who had never heard the story of Orange County housewife/school volunteer Mom Kelli Peters and the long, long ordeal she and her family went through at the hands of Kent and Jill Easter. Kelli Peters writes about it - helped along by "Sam Rule" - in her book, "I'll Get You!".

Kelli Peters was an all-star volunteer at her daughter's after school program. After a strange run-in with another mother, Jill Easter, at the school, Easter spent 6 mo

Fact, this is a true story. Fact, this is disturbing. Fact, I am sorry to say, I loved it. This was disturbing and engrossing and just downright crazy. Though this was written as a true story I found myself sucked into this crazy story of stalking and flat out madness. My heart broke for Kelli and her family while reading this and I could not believe that a grown woman was instigating this life destroying craziness.

This is a story of woman who just wants to help and be with her daughter so she v

This was such an interesting story and my mouth dropped open at what happened to this poor woman and her family.

Bullying doesn't happen just with kids, no adults bully also and Kelli found out how far a bully will go and it put her and her family in harms way. She didn't do anything to have this woman Jill start making her life unbearable but because of the type of person Jill was, as long as she was the center of attention it didn't matter who got hurt. The things Jill and her husband did to K

Meh. Between the 20/20, People, Dr. Phil, and other news outlets, you know the main points of the story and overall outcome. There's no research to the book, just Kelli telling her side - not that I seriously doubt Kelli's story. However, after about 75 pages of Kelli's voice telling the story, it began to feel like a broken record and a bit over the top. Enough. Glad it worked out, hope your family is doing well.

Awful. Terrible writing.

The story is unfortunate, in the sense that a woman and man of their stature or any human would act in the matter in this story.

Kelli is an inspirational woman which is why I picked it for my reading challenge prompt "inspirational woman."

Our society needs to stop people that are bullying in any FORM. (my humble opinion)

Full disclosure: I was given an advanced reader copy to read and review. The only instructions were to review the book by September 12th and to give an honest review. So, that's what I'm going to do.

I found this to be a very compelling read. I was somewhat familiar with Kelli's story already, having seen a couple of news articles and the Dr. Phil segment in the past, so I was really eager to be able to read this book and I jumped at the chance when given the opportunity. The book delves into thi

This book was AMAZING!! I didn't intend to read the entire book in one day, but I just couldn't put it down. I cannot believe how much Kelli Peters and her family were put through, and how much they still endure to this day. If I didn't know this was a true story, I'd think it was a really good fiction book. The sad truth is that it is a true story. I cannot fathom how someone could be so cold-hearted and without remorse, especially when it involves a totally innocent victim and her family. Just ...more

A real page turner

As I read this book the thought that kept swirling in my head was; how can one person do this horrible thing to another. Kelli, Bill's and Sydnie's story is an amazing one of perseverance

I knew this was a true crime book going in but the lengths the Easters would go to to prove Kelli wasn't fit to be a volunteer, PTA president, etc. I still don't understand what Jill was thinking or what her motivation was to prove Kelli was unfit and/or just all the things she was trying to accuse Kelli of.

Criminal Psychology is a passion of mine so motivation is always a huge factor for me with crimes and true crime books. I always want to know why or what possesses some people to commit the c

Interesting true tale soon to be a movie.

This is the story of an imagined slight that becomes all too real in the mind of the perpretator (?) the story of one mother's revenge that escalates as she sets out to destroy another mother.

The innocent victims other than the innocent mother and her family is the son whose mother is bent on revenge for an imagined slight.

She ensnares other mothers in her crusade and tries to destroy the reputation of a teacher/coach.

I was given a free copy for an honest review. WOW! Holy Hell I am so scared to stay on my child's PTA now... I am so amazed and blow away by this TRUE STORY. The evil that exists in this world is astonishing. Well written, and keeps you turning the pages and each page turned leads to another shocking event..... A must read!
