Synopsis: "I wanted to commit suicide." "I had suffered four long, torturous years of my father's intimate abuse, but it was all going to end tonight, Sunday, May 16th. I hadn't planned it that way, but that's what was to happen. All the stuff would hit the fan."
Up until the time she was 12, Tasha's family appeared to be your typical, blue-collar, loving middle class family with a stay-at-home mom, hardworking father and playful siblings. Tasha thought she had the best mom on the block, afterall, her mom was young enough to entertain Tasha and her older sister, Tina and younger brother, Tyrone ...but she was also old enough not to be thought of as a young slut with a houseful of kids. She was a housewife and took good care of her children. Tasha wouldn't have traded her mom for anything in the world. At least not at nine anyway..but when Tasha turned twelve it was a whole 'nother story. Tasha's mom, Gina, seemed to go through emotional changes after the birth of her fourth child, and Tasha's dad, Tommy, started to view Tasha as his sex kitten. All of the kids would feel the affect of the parental changes but Tasha would be most impacted as she would be verbally, physically and sexually abused and too frightened to tell anyone what was going on in her household.
Kimberly T. Matthews, treads in emotionally rich and disturbing territory in the autobiography titled Promise You Won't Tell Nobody. Promise You Won't Tell Nobody is a short book, yet it's a powerful story as the voice of Tasha leaps off the page and she makes us promise we won't tell anybody...although if someone would have told maybe Tasha's life would have turned out differently.
From the Author: Sharing of myself in this novel, will hopefully allow those who are suffering in this kind of traumatic experience to escape, and will open the eyes of those who may not have had to walk in these shoes, and will be able to prevent this story from happening to another child. Let me be your example; you cannot afford to NOT read this book.
