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 audiobook of psychological suspense, Baby Teeth.
Afflicted with a chronic debilitating condition, Suzette Jensen knew having children would wreak havoc on her already fragile body. Nevertheless, she brought Hanna into the world, pleased and proud to start a family with her husband Alex. Estranged from her own mother, Suzette is determined to raise her beautiful daughter with the love, care, and support she was denied.
But Hanna proves to be a difficult child. Now seven-years-old, she has yet to utter a word, despite being able to read and write. Defiant and anti-social, she refuses to behave in kindergarten classes, forcing Suzette to homeschool her. Resentful of her mother's rules and attentions, Hanna lashes out in anger, becoming more aggressive every day. The only time Hanna is truly happy is when she's with her father. To Alex, she's willful and precocious but otherwise the perfect little girl, doing what she's told.
Suzette knows her clever and manipulative daughter doesn't love her. She can see the hatred and jealousy in her eyes. And as Hanna's subtle acts of cruelty threaten to tear her and Alex apart, Suzette fears her very life may be in grave danger...
Praise for Baby Teeth:
"We Need to Talk About Kevin meets Gone Girl meets The Omen....a twisty, delirious read that will constantly question your sympathies for the two characters as their bond continues to crumble." ??Entertainment Weekly
"A pulse-spiking thriller." ??PopSuga

Baby Teeth de Zoje Stage

  1. 00
    Elizabeth de Ken Greenhall (sturlington)
    sturlington: I would recommend reading Elizabeth instead of Baby Teeth. Similar themes, although the child is older.
  2. 00
    My Sister Rosa de Justine Larbalestier (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: Very similar but with different twists and different perspective.
  3. 00
    The First Day of Spring de Nancy Tucker (cassidybolton)
    cassidybolton: similar themes of motherhood, violence, parent/child relationships

Read by Gaba Zachman???

This book was wild.
It’s so interesting the way it was presented. You know what’s going on with everyone very early on, but then how they navigate such an awful situation is where the bulk of the story is.
I sat here with my mouth agape a lot at what this girl dreamed up to do to her mom and I was so in love with that doctor!!! ( )

I was intrigued by this book...I've heard it referred to as " We need to talk about Kevin" meets " The Omen".....I disagree.....this is more " We need to talk about Kevin" meets " The bad seed".....except not as well written as the former and not as decisive as the latter.

The story is told from the perspective of Suzette...the Mother.......and Hanna...the daughter. Suzette is self centered, agonizingly weak, and ridiculously obsessed with her husband. Hanna is a disturbed child with both psychopathic and sociopathic traits......this is made worse by her above average intelligence, and her keen sense of perception.....she's well aware of her Mothers lack of real affection for her.

The story leaves the reader to decide who is the true monster. An enjoyable read....but, not quite what I expected. ( )

Hanna is a preternaturally precocious, non-verbal, home-schooled seven year old. She is the apple of her father's eye... And she is desperate to kill her mother.

Suzette is mommy. She tries to connect with and understand her child who seemingly hates her.

The book is written from both Hanna and Suzette's perspectives in alternating chapters. Suzette is kind of obsessed with her love for her husband and not wanting him to see her as a bad mother and Hanna is obsessed with her Daddy and not wanting him to see anyone else but her. Yeah, it's a little creepy but not creepy enough.
