The blood

Feeds the hunger

That threatens everything

It starts when Claudia offers her a yellow rose.

Immy has been in love before – many times, across many lifetimes. But never as deeply, as intensely as this.

Claudia has never been in love this before either. But then, this is her first time with a vampire.

The forbidden thirst for blood runs deep in Immy. And within her mind clamour the voices, of all the others she has been, their desires, and their wrongs.

A unique verse novel by the award-winning author of The Deepest Breath and The Space Between.

Publisher Review

"Grehan's verse novel skilfully charts uncertainty, temptation and the course of a strange, desperate love." -- Imogen Russell Williams * The Guardian * "A fresh, dark take on the vampire myth and desire, Baby Teeth shows vampires haunted by their pasts and memories, where immortality is not one long life but a broken patchwork of different experiences. It will twine around your heart and bite, ever so gently. I adored it." -- Helen Corcoran 'Grehan is not the first Irish writer to push the boundaries of vampire fiction ... Yet Grehan delves much deeper into the risky relationship between vampire and lover, as a means of exploring modern LGBTQ identity for her young adult readership.' -- Pet O'Connell * The Echo * "Delicious and unsettling." -- Claire Hennessey * The Irish Times * "Grehan evocatively conjures Immy's tragic sense of isolation and hard-won self-acceptance." * Financial Times * "It's personal. Powerful. Passionate." -- Hanna-Rose Sullivan * Paper Lanterns *
