Little Women!)That’s part of the reason why I wanted to focus on two sisters who are super close in age in my second novel, the YA thrillerThey’ll Never Catch Us(more on that below!).

This breathtaking, suspenseful novel tells the story of older sister Korede who is practical and loyal, most often to her younger sister Ayoola. The only thing is that Ayoola is harboring a deep secret only Korede knows: Ayoola is probably, most likely, definitely a serial killer—and all her boyfriends end up dead.

Korede’s always been there to help clean up the blood and cover for her sister, but when Ayoola sets her sights on Korede’s co-worker, who Korede’s been in love with forever, she has to make a choice about who to protect. Creep-tastic and fun, this book’s a finish-in-one-sitting kind of read.
