We’re back with this year’s first Book Club at the Brew Pub meeting, graciously hosted by our friends at the Selin’s Grove Brewing Co. in downtown Selinsgrove!
This month, we’re reading My Sister, the Serial Killer. This debut novel from Braithwaite tells the story of Korede and her younger sister Ayoola, who seems to have an inconvenient habit of murdering her boyfriends.
Join us on Thursday, February 28th at 9PM at the Brew Pub for great conversations over great food & drinks!
“Pulpy, peppery and sinister, served up in a comic deadpan…This scorpion-tailed little thriller leaves a response, and a sting, you will remember.”–NEW YORK TIMES
Korede is bitter. How could she not be? Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola’s third boyfriend in a row is dead. Korede’s practicality is the sisters’ saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her “missing” boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit. Korede has long been in love with a kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where she works. She dreams of the day when he will realize that she’s exactly what he needs. But when he asks Korede for Ayoola’s phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and how far she’s willing to go to protect her. Sharp as nails and full of deadpan wit, Oyinkan Braithwaite’s deliciously deadly debut is as fun as it is frightening.
