Book: My Sister, the Serial Killer
Author: Oyinkan Braithwaite
Last month, the women of the IQG joined a virtual book club founded and hosted by Zina Williams and we have decided to give short, honest reviews on each book we read as a part of the club. Our first book was My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite.
About the Book – Simply put, the book centers around two Nigerian sisters, one, Ayoola, is a manipulative and irresponsible serial killer with men as her victims and the other, Korede, resentfully protects her serial killer sister. The author does not hide who the serial killer is; there is absolutely no guessing game in this book. It explores a few themes, including sibling rivalry, loyalty, domestic abuse, childhood trauma, inner beauty vs. outer beauty, self-love (or lack thereof), and familial obligation.
