Reviews


"Emotionally rich and gloriously queer." - Kirkus

"Beautifully crafted." - Kirkus, 'Best of 2022: Our Favourite Teen & YA Books' list


"By linking vampirism to themes of queer desire and community as well as repeating personal cycles, Grehan freshens an old trope, building both a central romance and lifetimes-long connections that are by turns realistically sweet and thorny."- Publishers Weekly


'Baby Teeth is an unexpected LGBTQ+ novel in verse; it takes elements of horror and mixes them with romance, resulting in a changeling of a book that reimagines vampire myths for the twenty-first century.' - Foreword Reviews

"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, author of Queen of Coin and Whispers


"Grehan's verse novel skilfully charts uncertainty, temptation and the course of a strange, desperate love." - The Guardian


"Grehan evocatively conjures Immy's tragic sense of isolation and hard-won self-acceptance." - The Financial Times


"Delicious and unsettling."- The Irish Times


"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." - The Echo


"Expressive, strong, and compelling." - Armadillo Magazine


"Absolutely beautiful." - Down the Rabbit Hole


"Grehan keeps the vampiric vibes flowing with this unique, darkly beautiful and emotional read." - CultureFly


"It's personal. Powerful. Passionate." - Paper Lanterns
