“Years went by, but all they knew was that he was Liam, unlike all the others. A little boy named Liam, himself and no one else. Nothing else was clear. Alice wished she could gather him up in her arms and hide him forever from all the fear and horror.”
Alice and Jonathan have a child, Liam, but Alice’s son brings her no joy. Something is very wrong. When Liam is eventually found to be seriously ill, the diagnosis tears the family apart. Alice is convinced she knows how to help her son, but Jonathan trusts the health care system and is determined to follow medical advice. Finally, the only thing that binds the two of them is Liam himself, and the struggle to save him overwhelms them both. Nothing else matters, and their lives will never be the same.
Skinless is a powerful, unsparing and demanding story about a reality that touches the lives of many families.
