Abstract/Artist's Statement

This novella is about a queer Caribbean- American young woman named Nessa struggling with her relationship with her mother. A death occurs that leads Nessa to discover her mother may not be who she previously thought she was. This coming of age story confronts the delayed state of self actualization that occurs when Caribbean culture meets queer identity.
