Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of July 2018: The trials of parenthood are known to all: the sleepless nights, the teething, and the tantrums. In Baby Teeth, mom Suzette faces an additional trial: a young daughter, Hanna, who makes Wednesday Addams look positively angelic. Hanna is besotted with her father and violently opposed to sharing him with her mother. Withdrawn, refusing to speak, she’s waging a campaign of terror with Suzette as the prime target. But, apart from issues at school that Dad is able to excuse away, he sees no evidence of the terror his wife reports and stands ready to defend his silent angel, even against her mom. It’s the classic bad seed setup, but author Zoje Stage ups the ante, using alternating chapters to devastating effect. The swings from Suzette's panicked attempts to right the ship and fix her daughter to Hanna's chilling interior monologues drive much of the suspense in this creepy thriller. And the alternating chapter setup allows Hanna the last words, words which left me open-mouthed. Ever wanted to shout, “He’s behind you!” at a horror movie in a theater? Well, Baby Teeth may leave you wanting to howl something similar at the pages of a book. —Vannessa Cronin --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Unnervingand unputdownable, BABY TEETH will get under your skin and keep you trapped in its chilling grip until the shocking conclusion." --New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline

"We Need to Talk About Kevin meets Gone Girl meets The Omen. Baby Teeth is a twisty, delirious read that will constantly question your sympathies for the two characters as their bond continues to crumble." --Ew.com

"Deliciously creepy...the author keeps the suspense taut...offering a terrifying glimpse into the inner thoughts of a budding sociopath." --Library Journal (starred)

"Tightly plotted, expertly choreographed.... Stage palpably conveys Suzette's fear, anger, frustration, and desperation while exploring the deleterious effects that motherhood can have on one's marriage and self-worth. ...Stage fuses horror with domestic suspense to paint an unflinching portrait of childhood psychopathy and maternal regret." --Kirkus (starred)

"Stage's deviously fun debut takes child-rearing anxiety to demented new heights. Stage expertly crafts this creepy, can't-put-it-down thriller into a fearless exploration of parenting and marriage that finds the cracks in unconditional love." --Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Zoje Stage's Baby Teeth is cunning, sharp, and nasty, and wickedly funny until it isn't funny anymore. This intelligent, unrelenting, layered shocker can stand proudly alongside classics like The Other and The Butcher Boy, with their 'evil' children uncannily reflecting our own sins." --Paul Tremblay, nationally bestselling author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World

"Every time we read the premise of Baby Teeth, all the hair on the back of our neck stands up. Simply put, it's about a sweet little girl who wants to kill her mother. And it. Is. Bonkers. Do you have goosebumps yet?" --HelloGiggles

"Imagine WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN only with insight into what Kevin was thinking--and if Eva had fought back. This dark, terrifying novel unfolds as a battle of wits between a struggling mother and her psychotic young daughter--and its genius is that the reader's allegiance isn't allowed to linger too long on either side. You'll be desperate to discuss the ending once you've recovered from the shock of it. A must-read." --Catherine Ryan Howard, USA Today bestselling author of Distress Signals

"Baby Teeth is electrifyingly creepy. It calls to mind the great monster children of The Fifth Child or We Need to Talk About Kevin, but has a devilish tension all its own. Twisted, playful, and deeply unsettling, Zoje Stage's debut announces her as a new voice worth celebrating."--Colin Winnette, author of The Job of the Wasp

"Baby Teeth is deeply unsettling in the best possible way. Absolutely unforgettable and unflinching, it digs right into the painful nerve of family, obligation and dependence--it's a hell of a debut." --Kelly Braffet, author of Save Yourself
