Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage

Creepy kids are the worst.

But what if the creepy kid is your only daughter that you love so much? And no matter what you do to connect and bond, your daughter simply hates you and wants you dead?

From the outside, Suzette’s family looks perfect. They run a successful company and own a perfect house. She has a very supportive and loving husband who has been there for her every step of the way, even through the worst parts of her Crohn’s disease. They also have a beautiful 7-year-old daughter who’s intellectually ahead.

But Suzette has been struggling with Hanna for years because of her reluctance to speak. She also demonstrates no sense of empathy.

She has been home-schooling her because of the many times Hanna has been kicked out of school for behavioral problems.
She knows that something is seriously wrong with Hanna, and that her life is in danger. But how can she convince her husband that Hanna needs help when she’s daddy’s perfect little angel whenever he’s around?

It’s such an interesting, unsettling, and creepy story. What would you do if your daughter hated you so much that she will do everything to hurt you and kill you?

The story has a good pace that will keep you reading and reading until the last page. Many times you will also wish that hurting children is not crime. There are no monsters and ghosts, but Hanna sure is a crazy and creepy little fothermucker!
