My Sister the Serial Killer (Large Print / Library Binding)
How much do we owe our families? Korede helped her sister dispose of her boyfriend’s body. Again. But this time, she’s not sure she believes Ayoola’s version of events. With her hands tied both by family bonds and by her own actions, she can’t help wondering what kind of man Femi really was and whether he deserved death at her sister’s hands. And then her sister turns her attention to the coworker that Korede loves. A taut read, in which the tension and the stakes are ever on the rise, and the best and worst aspects of the bonds between sisters are explored.— Ginger

“My Sister, the Serial Killer is one of the best books to come along in quite a while — fast, funny, and completely engrossing. Oyinkan Braithwaite offers up a tale of Nigerian sisters Ayoola, a beautiful and sociopathic serial killer who destroys boyfriends, aware that all they ever want her for is her appearance, and Korede, a nurse whose average looks leave her continually passed up in preference for Ayoola. Still, taciturn and devoted Korede works hard to cover up her charming sister’s crimes. What will happen when they both fall for the same guy? At once a page-turner and a perversely righteous tale about the emptiness of physical beauty and the superficiality of being charmed by it, My Sister, the Serial Killer is entertaining, provoking, and utterly fascinating!”
