"Ill Get You!" Drugs, Lies, and the Terrorizing of a PTA Mom by Sam RuleReviewed by: Hello Beautiful Book Blog
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 to light.
I wanted to know the details of why someone could be so ugly and completely insane towards someone who really did nothing to them in the first place. What makes someone like this do the things they do. I am a naturally curious person so I want to know all the details. The psychology of the mind is something that really interests me. Why do people make these decisions? Is this something predetermined by their chemical make up? Or is this something that they pick up from people around them? I guess most of the time we never figure it out.
After each chapter there was something new to add to the long list of just pure insanity. I felt exhausted after reading this book. I can’t even imagine how Kelli felt living it. All the twists and turns in the story will have you just thinking WHY??? Sydnie’s letter really just broke my heart. It was not only Kelli Peters who suffered through this ordeal, but her entire family, including her daughter. I think a lot of the time in the media, the victim is shown as just the person targeted, but there is little about the rest of the family. I am glad this book brought to life a little bit about what it was like for the rest of the family.
I’m so sorry this happened to you Kelli. I’m glad you got a little resolution in the end and you are getting to tell your full story through the written word.
If y’all have never tried a true crime/nonfiction story before and want to try one out, this one would be great to start with!

Julia Roberts to Play Disgraced PTA Mom Kelli Peters in ‘Framed’
A former attorney convicted of trying to set up an Irvine PTA mom on a phony drug possession charge dropped her appeal of a multimillion-dollar civil judgment against her Wednesday. The move prompted the Fourth District Court of Appeal to end any chances that Jill Easter, who now goes by the name Ava Everheart, could have the judgment against her overturned. She had continued on with her appeal even after her ex-husband, Kent Easter, also a former attorney who was disbarred, dropped his appeal and settled his case with Kelli Peters, her husband and their teenage daughter. Attorney Robert Marcereau, who won the civil case against the Easters, appeared for oral arguments Dec. Marcereau speculated that perhaps she did not want her name associated with a precedent-setting, published appellate ruling.

The cop wanted her car keys. Kelli Peters handed them over. They were outside Plaza Vista School in Irvine, where she had watched her daughter go from kindergarten to fifth grade, where any minute now the girl would be getting out of class to look for her. Now she watched as her ruin seemed to unfold before her. Watched as the cop emerged from her car holding a Ziploc bag of marijuana, 17 grams worth, plus a ceramic pot pipe, plus two smaller EZY Dose Pill Pouch baggies, one with 11 Percocet pills, another with 29 Vicodin. It was enough to send her to jail, and more than enough to destroy her name. Her legs buckled and she was on her knees, shaking violently and sobbing and insisting the drugs were not hers.
