Baby Teeth By Zoje Stage

MEET HANNA: Seven-year-old Hanna is a sweet-but-silent angel in the eyes of her adoring father Alex. He’s the only person who understands her. But her mother Suzette stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.
MEET SUZETTE: Suzette loves her daughter, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. She’s also becoming increasingly frightened by Hanna’s little games, while her husband Alex remains blind to the failing family dynamics. Soon, Suzette starts to fear that maybe their supposedly innocent baby girl may have a truly sinister agenda.
A battle of wills between mother and daughter reveals the frailty and falsehood of familial bonds in award-winning playwright and filmmaker Zoje Stage’s tense novel of psychological suspense, Baby Teeth.

My Thoughts...

 Oh don't even know what to say about this book. The evil seven year Hanna was just over the top. This was a first for me. I was rooting for the mom the whole time. I had to know if the mom was going to turn on that evil kid or not so I keep on reading.
I gave this book 3 stars, but based on the story you may want to give this one a try I have never read anything like it before.
