Andie is seventeen. Andrea is seventeen. They work in a convenience store at the same time in their lives, disconnected by time but find a connection through the never-ending moment of love; when the world really does fucking explode.
Written at the tender age of seventeen, Dead Skin is a hybrid text of queer and hetero "love" stories that challenge what it truly means to love and be loved at seventeen. It is a coming of age story of a mother and daughter navigating the toxicity of their own relationships, in search of that “thing” we will never have with any other human, the truest form of love; an inherent and maternal connection.
