June 28, 09 Because I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas

Hey!

Because I Am Furniture is about Anke, whose father abuses her brother and sister, but not herself. She's a non existent watcher of the horrors in her household. But then she joins the volleyball team, and learns how to say mine. She becomes strong enough to realize that she can end this life she only sees.


I loved this book. It's all in poems, and it made sense to me for someone who lives in a destructive environment to think and write like that. The writing was perfect, I didn't really know Anke, but I liked the part I did know. Basically, it was the structure and the writing that made me love this book.

  5. I'd definitely reccommend it if you're into that kinda thing. I have to be in a certain mood for dark books.
