Cutting Teeth - Chandler Baker
A sharp, smart thriller that is part murder mystery, part motherhood manifesto which asks: is there anything a mother won't do for her children? BIG LITTLE LIES with toddlers meets GREENWICH PARK from New York Times bestseller Chandler Baker.
'Sharp, original, wickedly astute' Ashley Audrain, Sunday Times bestselling author of THE PUSH
ISN'T PARENTHOOD ALL ABOUT SACRIFICE?
Darby, Mary Beth, and Rhea are on personal quests to reclaim aspects of their identities subsumed by motherhood - their careers, their sex lives, their bodies. Their children, though, disrupt their plans when an unsettling medical condition begins to go around the Little Academy preschool: the kids are craving blood.
Then a young teacher is found dead, and the only potential witnesses are ten adorable four-year-olds.
Soon it becomes clear that the children are not just witnesses, but also suspects . . . and so are their mothers.
Part murder mystery, part motherhood manifesto, Cutting Teeth explores the standards society holds mothers to - along with the ones to which we hold ourselves - and the things no one tells you about becoming a parent.
