With unrelenting yet tender honesty, She Has a Name tells the story of a young woman with autism from multiple points of view. The speakers in these poems--sisters, mother, father, teacher--seek to answer questions science can't yet answer, seek to protect the young woman, and seek to understand what autism means to their own lives as well.
