Bus Girl is a thought-provoking collection of poems from a woman with Down syndrome. We read, in a voice that is both direct and honest, of Gretchen's development as she matures toward independence. Her experiences working in a retail store restaurant as a bus girl form the core of this book. For the first time, she found purpose and success. However, when the store closes and Gretchen loses her job, it becomes immediately apparent how important a sense of purpose can be not only for an individual with Down Syndrome, but anybody. Bus Girl provides a clear-eyed view of the world from a woman who, despite her disability, is determined not only to be heard, but ultimately, to prevail.
