I feel weird for saying this but I loved this book! Does that make me crazy????!!! About half way through, I started wondering who was more crooked, me or the author? I couldn’t stop reading it though!
Alex and Suzette have the perfect marriage along with a daughter, Hanna who is seven. Hanna is a sweet little girl who is mute. They have tried putting her in several schools hoping she will start talking but they’re never lucky.
For some reason, Hanna does not like her mom and starts plotting to get rid of her so it will just be her and daddy. This part was creepy and I kept waiting for the book to turn towards some incest or something (then I would’ve put the book down) but it never did. I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the little girl’s ideas. Am I sick or something? I was telling my oldest daughter about it laughing. However, because of my description she said she may try reading it (and she doesn’t read). Who is more sick, her or I?
Seriously, the book is good and makes you wonder what you would do in that circumstance. I could see it being a Lifetime movie easily if not a theatrical movie. I loved how Alex supported his wife through it all for the most part. Of course he had his doubts as anyone would but their relationship was my favorite part of the book.
I only gave it three stars on Goodreads only because of the ending. I am thinking their needs to be a sequel. However, because of this ending, I could see it easily made into a TV series as well. I think it would also be a good Book Club book since it brings up so many topics.
How would you react if your child was trying to hurt you?
Would you keep the signs from your spouse as long as Suzette did?
I received an ARC of Baby Teeth in exchange for my honest review. Thank you netgalley.com. The release date is July 17, 2018.
