What Big is very extraordinary book. It’s kinda way out there and very different. I enjoyed the storyline of supernatural family living in a small town. As they try to be normal, while hiding there strange secrets from everyone. When Eleanor comes home after being gone for years, she stir the family up.
Eleanor did a unthinkable thing at her boarding school, now she comes home facing the consequences of her actions. She is not like her family, and have yet embrace her powers like them. One day, Eleanor just left holme, without a word. Now she tries to mend things with the family. As they must come together when one of their own passed away.
This book kinda reminds of The Dark Shadows, a very old soap opera. Both are kinda same story about creatures hiding in plain sight to fit. Of course there be some family drama and a lot of teeth. This read was very different and weird for me. Which I really did enjoy. Kinda slow pace story, but it did peck my interest until the very end. Also I love how creepy the cover is for What Big Teeth.
If your in for some family drama, and supernatural brings running around. Then you might like What Big Teeth.
