Korede's long been in love with him and isn't prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back but to save one would mean sacrificing the other My Sister the Serial Killer is a blackly comic novel about how blood is thicker and difficult to get out of the carpet than wat. Set in Nigeria My Sister the Serial Killer follows dependable Korede and her younger sister Ayoola who oops occasionally murders people Braithwaite s debut ranges from wry and macabre to predicable and stale She lures her audience with two striking opening lines and the first few chapters promise a sinster tale of deadpan humor and sly coverups but the book uickly succumbs to familiar tropes the beautiful can do nothing wrong younger sister and the older less attractive sibling bearing the brunt of responsibility a woman so beautiful men just want to be with her and two women fighting over the same man Aside from taking a satirical approach to murder there s nothing subersive about this book Its a tale of performing unspeakable acts in the name of self preservation and sisterhood whose twists and conclusion are forseeable however it s a uick read with occasional hints of humor My Sister the Serial Killer is best approached as a small snack for an amusing afternoon the kind of book one should check out from the library swallow in two bites and promptly return I bet you didn t know that bleach masks the smell of blood Most people use bleach indiscriminately assuming it is a catchall product never taking the time to read the list of ingredients on the back never taking the time to return to the recently wiped surface to take a closer look Bleach will disinfect but it s not great for cleaning residue so I use it only after I have first scrubbed the bathroom of all traces of life and death
