#BabyTeeth by #ZojeStage is one of the most haunting books I’ve ever read.
The plot centers around 3 characters, Suzette, her husband Alex, and their mute daughter Hanna. We don’t know why Hanna is mute, but she is able to vocalize. Suzette suffers from Crohn’s Disease, and we see her struggles with both this and with her love/fear relationship with Hanna.
Eventually we see Hanna find herself an invisible friend of sorts, in Marie-Anne Dufosset, a woman who was burned as a witch in France. Hanna sees her mother as an evil to be gotten rid of, and her father as the epitome of everything good.
I won’t post spoilers, but this book will absolutely grab you and not let go. I finished it 2 days ago and cannot get it out of my head.
