My Teeth in Your Heart by Joanna Nadin - Discussion Notes

2024, Cambridge, England

Billy’s got problems. A Levels, a mum who checked out of parenting a while ago, and then… there’s what Billy’s done to Cass, her person. Some secrets are too toxic to keep, but there’s no way Billy can let this one loose.

1974, Famagusta, Cyprus

Anna’s a good ex-pat girl, focused on her A Levels, dreaming of studying at Cambridge, and definitely not looking for the love of her life. But then love does come, closely followed by war, and Anna’s carefully crafted world is blown apart.

Anna and Billy are two girls living decades apart, both searching for who they are and who they could be. When a diary connects them, it tells more than just a life story. It reveals a legacy of war, with consequences that could devastate two generations.
