Book Club: Bad Apple by Zoje Stage

Bad Apple

Henpicked’s book of the month for June 2021…

Bad AppleThank you so much to everyone who has joined in the discussion about If I Can’t Have You by Charlotte Levin.

If you haven’t shared your thoughts yet, please do join in the conversation at the bottom of the article on Disqus. What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to a friend? We know some of us haven’t finished yet but we’d still like to hear from you.

For this month we’ve chosen Bad Apple by Zoje Stage. Thanks to Laura Jokic for the suggestion.

Seven-year-old Hanna has never spoken a word.

She is a sweet but silent angel in the eyes of her adoring father, but with Mummy, things are different. Suzette loves her daughter but difficulties with babysitters and teachers over the years have put a strain on their relationship and her sanity.

Then Hanna speaks for the first time, to Suzette alone, and what she says is chilling.

Here are the reviews for Bad Apple:

“Deliciously creepy.” New York Post

“Gripping.” InStyle

“Gone Girl meets We Need to Talk About Kevin… a twisty delirious read.” Entertainment Weekly
