There’s a monster living in Chris’ home, but that’s not even her worst nightmare.

What was your greatest fear as a child? Monsters under your bed? Creatures in your closet? What if the scariest thing imaginable wasn’t an evil beast, but a person invading your home? Thirteen-year-old Chris is going to have to face her biggest fears when a mysterious woman moves into her home and hijacks her once-perfect family life. Will she make it out alive? Shrouded in fear of the unknown, Feathers and Teeth is a new horror comedy with plenty of bite.
