I thought they were my best friends.

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.

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 grey 

They feel dark and dreary 

And for The Girl, everything feels like a nightmare 

She is lost and cannot find the way
