Because I Am Furniture
by Thalia Chaltas




Overview -
Anke's father is abusive to her brother and sister. But not to her. Because, to him, she is like furniture-- not even worthy of the worst kind of attention. Then Anke makes the school volleyball team. She loves feeling her muscles after workouts, an ache that reminds her she is real. Even more, Anke loves the confidence that she gets from the sport. And as she learns to call for the ball on the court, she finds a voice she never knew she had. For the first time, Anke is making herself seen and heard, working toward the day she will be able to speak up loud enough to rescue everyone at home-- including herself.
