I Am Furniture by Thalia Chaltas


Thalia Chaltas drags us into Anke's life and holds us up against the wall next to her like the wallpaper she is treated as by her father. Anke's older brother and sister are VERY visible to their father who abuses them physically, mentally and sexually. Anke, on the other hand, is invisible! She is seen as so unimportant that he doesn't notice or acknowledge her. Anke has liked being invisible because it has kept her safe all these years. The only problem is that once she takes one giant step out of her invisible box where her father has put her and into the Soccer Team she begins to find her voice and her strength. Will she be able to be brave enough to save them all? Will she be able to become a visible force with her father? If so, what will the consequences be? Read Because I Am Furniture and find out these answers to Anke's world.
