“I thought they were my best friend…”

There lives a little girl whom you will never know the name of, and for her, a terrible storm is coming. She is going to a new, public middle school knowing no one but her sister, and the horrors are absolutely endless.

But she doesn’t expect what is to come.

In her first few months of school, terrible and unspeakable things begin to happen, that go beyond what is considered “normal”. Finding the courage to get away from the wrong people is a difficult thing, but when a horrific incident occurs, she finds herself running from who she once thought to be friends.

Now lost and alone, The Girl turns to one thing to help her get through her darkest moments. Writing poetry is the one way she can express her anger, and when her school announces that they will be hosting an open-mic night, she knows she has to enter. But entering means that she will have to face her demons, and it could be her worst nightmare…

From a teenaged author, You Won't Know Her Name shines a light on a heartbreaking reality that often goes unspoken about - the issue that is bullying in middle school. From hateful comments to real, shocking violence, this book shares what cannot be ignored.

For our readers, Here is an exerct:

There lives a little girl 
Whom you will never learn the name of
 But she exists; she’s real in these pages 
Her features, you may never learn 
But you can know one thing 
She is a survivor 
Or, she thinks she is 
She thinks she’s faced the worst storm 
But that’s a lie, and things are only calm 
Because a deadly hurricane is coming 

The Girl is starting middle school three days late 
Once because of a car accident 
Then, because of a tragedy 
And lastly, because of what is supposed to be good news 
She’s moving to a new school 

The Girl walks through the doors for the very first time 
Her sister by her side 
She takes in a deep breath 
Other kids flooding around her 
The public school is like nothing she’s ever seen before 

The school floors are gre
They feel dark and dreary 
And for The Girl, everything feels like a nightmare 
She is lost and cannot find the way 

The Girl is given a fresh slip of paper 
With bold lettering telling her where to go 
It’s like a map, and it gives her a classroom number 
She needs to go there soon, or else she’ll be horribly late 
On her already chaotic first day
