A fierce battle between mother and daughter reveals the fragility and lies of family ties in the suspenseful novel of psychological tension by award-winning playwright and filmmaker Zoje Stage. Baby teeth.
Suzette Jensen, depressed by a chronic, debilitating condition, knew that children would do devastating damage to their already fragile body. Nevertheless, she brought Hanna into the world, pleased and proud to start a family with her husband Alex. Alienated 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 kid. Now, seven years old, she has yet to say a word, although she can read and write. Defiant and antisocial, she refuses to behave in kindergarten and forces Suzette to teach her at home. Hanna rejects the rules and attentions of her mother and is angry with anger. She gets more aggressive every day. The only time Hanna is really happy is when she's with her dad. For Alex, she is stubborn and precocious, but otherwise the perfect little girl who does what she said.
Suzette knows that her clever and manipulative daughter does not love her. She can see the hatred and jealousy in her eyes. And as Hanna's subtle threats of cruelty threaten to tear her and Alex apart, Suzette fears that her life could be in grave danger …
