Because I Am FurnitureBook - 2009
From Library Staff
Anke in Old German means "little Anne." It's hard to feel powerless, like a piece of forgotten furniture. And it's confusing and sick to feel jealous of the abusive attention her siblings are getting, but this is the reality in Anke's "house of horrors."
Anke is an invisible witness in a house of horrors until she makes the volleyball team. As her confidence begins to grow, she's finally able to imagine a day when her voice will be loud enough to save everyone at home... including herself.
