READ TREE

 



Join the HSC leisure book club, Relax and Read, which is a complement to Read and Lead! 

Relax and Read is sponsored by the Robert M. Bird Society, with Library faculty facilitating the book club.

Book Exchange

In 2015 BHSL Staff created a Relax and Read Book Exchange on the 4th floor of the Library in the Recreational Reading area.  Turn to your left once you exit the elevator.  If you see a book in the exchange you'd like to read take it and if you have a book you're finished with leave it, it's that simple.  

Enjoy!

Before We Were Yours book cover

 

Book Summary

 

 

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.
