In the sixth grade, a girl’s life was turned upside down by a series of horrific bullying events.
In seventh grade, she wrote a book about it - You Won’t Know Her Name, a haunting novel told in poetry about a nameless girl who, along with her sister, undergoes the same events.
Now, she returns with a new poetry collection, featuring poems she wrote before, during, and after the creation of You Won’t Know Her Name. These poems are dark and unordered, expressing her pain and healing - everything that was, and wasn’t told in You Won’t Know Her Name.
And this time, The Girl does have a name: Shanti Hershenson.
We don’t talk about the book
With a five letter nameless name
We don’t talk about what it means Or what it’s about
For “The Forbidden Book” is only a book of poetry And poems can do no wrong
