BABY TEETH by ZOJE STAGE
Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage is a mystery/thriller about a disturbed seven year, Hanna, and her mother, Suzette. Hanna refuses to speak, is abusive, behaves appallingly, and hates her mother. Alex, Hanna’s father, is oblivious of Hanna’s disturbing behaviour, much of which Suzette has stopped mentioning as it’s causing strife in their marriage. Hanna just wants her mother gone… at any cost.
I was enraptured from the first page and could not put it down. It was spooky to see how manipulative, calculating, and shrewd Hanna was in masterminding her plans. Very scary indeed! For a debut novel, I’d say Zoje Stage nailed it and will now be on my radar. I rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. Recommended for anyone who loves creepy page-turners.
