Kelly Braffet recommends
Baby Teeth (2018)
"Baby Teeth is deeply unsettling in the best possible way. Absolutely unforgettable and unflinching, it digs right into the painful nerve of family, obligation and dependence--it's a hell of a debut"
Ordinary Monsters (2022)
(Talents , book 1)
J M Miro
"Ordinary Monsters is one of my favorite books of the year?it's full of surprises, atmospheric as hell, and moves like a runaway train. Nothing in this book is what you expect it to be and it couldn't be more satisfying."
