Baby Teeth

Immy is haunted by all the lives she has lived; they clamour in the back of her mind, crying out for attention, crying for the person she was a hundred, maybe a thousand years ago. But Immy is trying to live in the here and now, and she’s falling in love. She has been in love before, of course, but never like this.

Claudia learns Immy’s incredible secrets one by one and takes it all in her stride. Being loved by a vampire was never going to be easy, but the pair’s need for each other drowns out all fear and doubt, at least for now. This reviewer was swept right along with them, rooting for them, crying for them, and haunted by them, long after the very last page was turned.

Baby Teeth is a unique and elegant take on the vampire romance trope, falling victim to none of the usual clichés that flooded bookshops a few years ago. Written in a lyrical verse form that has the soothing quality of a lullaby one minute and lies like a lead weight on your heart the next, this is a story of tragedy, tenderness and compelling beauty.
