Baby Teeth

Book: Baby Teeth
Author: Zoje Stage

Meet Hanna.

She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

Meet Suzette.

She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette's husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.-Goodreads

Review: I loved this book. It was dark, devious and most definitely not a book for everyone. I haven't dived in the reviews but I would suspect a lot of either "I loved it" or "I hated it" and few in-between. The characters are all unlikable for the most part and as a parent, it was straight up uncomfortable to read at times. It reminded me a lot of "We Need to Talk About Kevin." In this book we also have a clueless father, a woman who probably shouldn't have had kids but is trying her best and a child that may or may not be a budding sociopath. 

Grade: 5/5
