Publisher's Description

She looked into my eyes and blinked hers slowly and deliberately, like a stroke victim, to show me that although she couldn't speak, she understood what I was saying to her. I stroked her hair softly. 'I know you're in there, honey,' I told her. 'We'll get you out.'"
Despite the horror of seeing fifteen-month-old Elizabeth slip away into autism, her mother knew that her bright little girl was still in there. When Elizabeth eventually learned to communicate, first by using a letterboard and later by typing, the poetry she wrote became proof of a glorious, life-affirming victory for this young girl and her family.

Although she cannot speak, Elizabeth writes poetry that shines a light on the inner world of autism and the world around us.

Publisher's Weekly

Thirteen-year-old Bonker has autism, cannot speak, and yet writes poetry to express her keen intellect and sense of humor. She is quite expressive and completely aware of her surroundings (and how people react to her), as her writing reveals. Throughout her story, Bonker’s mother, Breen, tells what it’s like for Elizabeth and another child, Charles, who also has autism, to live the fullest lives they can with their condition. Engaging, heartwarming (and heartbreaking), this mother/daughter writing team completely captures the struggles and the triumphs of living, with grit and grace, beyond a diagnosis. Readers will find themselves up close and personal, getting lots of questions answered about autism in general and how this mysterious condition changes lives every day. Bonker’s courageous spirit is contagious and will leave readers hoping and praying for a cure to come soon. (Oct.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
