Suzette is unable to form a bond with her seven-year-old daughter, who cannot--or will not--speak. Ever since Hanna was a baby, she felt rejected by her. It's as if the child hates her, leaving Suzette very frightened.
Alex wants to believe his wife's accounts of their daughter's cruel and unusual behavior, but he's never seen anything but her love. Is Hanna just a naughty girl whose antics reveal intelligence, creativity, maybe even charm? Or is she actually trying to kill her mother?
A powerhouse, razor-sharp novel of psychological suspense from blazing new talent Zoje Stage, Baby Teeth raises more questions than it answers--and will leave you guessing until its shocking conclusion.
