    Because I am Furniture PDF/EPUB ↠ Because I PDF \ because kindle, furniture mobile, Because I ebok, Because I am Furniture PDFThis is the kind of book that they need to have in schools because child abuse and domestic violence is still alarmingly common and still not a whole lot of kids speak out about it because they don't know how or what the consequences will be Because I Am Furniture is an empowering story of one girl struggling to find her voice not just in sports but also in the attempt to save her siblings from the brunt of her father's abuse She's always been the lucky one largely ignored by him and thus able to avoid the worst of it but still she knows her family is horribly dysfunctional at best even herself wanting so badly to be noticed that she actually envies her sister for being raped because at least then her dad would be paying attention to her I'm not sure what to think of that but it's very disturbingPlaying volleyball gives her a voice she never knew she had and with that she learns the importance of standing up for not just herself but also her family

    Because I am Furniture PDF/EPUB ↠ Because I PDF \ because kindle, furniture mobile, Because I ebok, Because I am Furniture PDFThis book just didn't work for me It's a novel in verse which I usually like very much But I don't think that the story should have been told that way I think it should have been a regular novelThe 'verse' alternated between pretty sophomoric stuff I supposed in an attempt to make the voice of the 14 year old protagonist authentic and some high level word usage within the versewhich would not fit a 14 year old living in the situationThe father is over the top abusive beats up the son beats on and rapes the middle daughter but doesn't touch the younger daughter Hence the title The mother out of fear of something has looked the other way tried to not rock the boat It's freaky creepy and I suppose accurate for some situations Th

I read this book in one sitting roughly one hour Took me roughly another hour to return to reality Written in verse a form I absolutely love when done correctly I am Furniture unravels the lives of a family plagued by abuse sexual physical mental and emotional abuse The story reveals the rawness of emotion and the roller coaster of feelings that exist when an individual develops her ability to want something better There were moments when I questioned the insanity of not speaking up sooner but Chaltas weaves a story in which it is easy to understand the protagonist's choices I found myself feeling guilty devouring the book in an effort to find out what happens Embarrassment ran through my cheeks when certain aspects of the abuse were so blatantly described In the end pride in Anke trumped all emotions I am Furniture tells the powerful story of taking back ownership of one's life and standing up for those th
