Because I Am Furniture

Dad hurts them
not me
likes them better.
Volleyball gives me a voice
but when to use it
I don't know.
Because I am furniture.

How would you convince your friends to read the book: I would tell them that it is totally realistic and written in poems—they would find that cool.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: I think that the most compelling aspect of the book was that it is written in poems—that really sort of makes you read it differently and makes it unique.
Did the cover reflect the contents: The cover was not what ultimately tempted me into picking up the book. It did, however, reflected the contents really well. This cover should not be changed.
