Bestselling author, Reese pick, and GMA pick Chandler Baker is back with a funny, daring mystery about what happens when ten preschoolers with an odd craving for blood are the only witnesses to a murder, pitched as Big Little Lies meets Nothing to See Here
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—when their children, who all attend preschool at Little Academy, develop an unsettling medical condition: the kids are craving blood. Then a young teacher is found dead, and the only potential witnesses are ten adorable 4-year-olds.
Soon it becomes clear that the children are not just witnesses, but also suspects. . . and so are their mothers.
As the police begin to look more closely, the children’s ability to bleed their parents dry becomes deadly serious. 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.
