This is a great collection of short stories. It reminded me of the Netflix show "Black Mirror" but dealing more with issues of racism and consumerism. Very satirical, unique, and timely!

My Sister, the Serial Killer: A Novel Cover Image

Published: Doubleday - November 20th, 2018

Korede and Ayoola are sisters living in Lagos, Nigeria. Korede is a nurse who spends her days tending patients, swooning over charming doctor Tade, and cleaning up after Ayoola murders another boyfriend. It's happened three times already, and you know "Three and they label you a serial killer." When Ayoola comes to the hospital one day, she meets Tade and sets her sights on him- which does not bode well for any of them. Braithwaite does not waste words, each seems carefully chosen and fits perfectly. I could not put this thrilling book down- it's a dark little novel with short chapters that make it compulsively readable.
