Look Out For … Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage - cover“With early buzz calling this book a cross between The Other, Gone Girl, and The Omen, we can’t wait to sink our teeth into it. “

Stay-at-home mom Suzette has her hands full trying to connect with her daughter Hanna. Seven-years-old, Hanna cannot—or will not—speak. On top of all of that, Suzette can’t shake the feeling that Hanna, her own daughter, actually despises her.

Suzette’s ex-husband Alex wants to believe her versions of Hanna’s unusual behavior, but he’s never seen it firsthand. For him, Hanna displays only love and affection, and that drives Suzette crazy. Maybe Hanna is just a typical, young girl, her behavior simply showing great intelligence and creativity.

Or maybe Hanna is just trying to kill her?

Why we’re excited about this book: 

With early buzz calling this book a cross between The Other, Gone Girl, and The Omen, we can’t wait to sink our teeth into it. Your sympathies for the two characters will erode with each page as you uncover what’s really going on, and Stage keeps you guessing until the very end. Library Journal says Baby Teeth is “Deliciously creepy…the author keeps the suspense taut…offering a terrifying glimpse into the inner thoughts of a budding sociopath.” Releasing 17 July 2018 from St. Martin’s Press, Zoje Stage’s debut novel Baby Teeth is available for pre-order right now.

    Strangely, this is called The Bad Apple in Britain, which is nowhere near as good a title. Must have been changed by British publishers Corgi.
