Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage book review

Synopsis

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.

Review

I really loved this book! It was well written and a great psychological mind bender. The plot fascinated me all the way through. I could not put it down. I found myself white knuckled, gripping my kindle as I swiped through each page, eager to know what would happen. The story is told in alternating perspectives between the mother and the daughter. You see the mothers side and see where she is living in fear of her daughter, all while trying to love her. You also see the daughter where she is jealous and acts out over the love of her father. The book wraps up nicely, but leaves room for a possibility of a book 2 (please oh please let there be a book 2). This story was flawlessly written and very unique for its genre. Was the daughter really possessed or just crazy? Did the father do something to the daughter or not? I have questions and I need answers in the form of book 2 now!  This was a one click read for me, and I hope this will not be the last book by this author as this was her debut book (i believe). This book has climbed to my top 10 list of 2018 thus far! 5 stars from me!!!!
