This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: It's 1958, and the Zonolite Company's asbestos mining operation looms over the town of Libby, Montana, stifling its air and exploiting its people for profits. I Can't Breathe! investigates the back-office politics and abusive management strategy that is killing thousands of Libby residents and even millions around the world. But corporate abuse isn't the only kind taking place in Libby. An adopted teenager named Dan is new to Libby High School. He has big dreams of playing professional basketball. The school's music teacher picks Dan as her newest target for sexual exploitation, threatening not only Dan's innocence but also his self-esteem and belief that he can realize his goals. Dan's friend Julie is the middle of three sisters-the Bowman sisters, who also face abuse. Their mentally ill mother mistreats them daily, and their father isn't around enough to even need to turn a blind eye. When Julie's boss at the candy store discovers her bruises, and she admits to their source, an informal investigation launches that both threatens the Bowman girls' safety and provides the hope they need to escape their situation and begin better lives, in which love prevails over fear.

Riassunto:

A mystery of abuse and death weaved its way into the Libby, Montana, community in the late 1950’s. Corporate abuse held community members captive as they breathed the poisonous air from the asbestos mining company. The Bowman family hid dark secrets of child abuse. The public school harbored a sexual abuser. And then there were the missing children. Who took the children? Why? What happened to them? The discovery of a child’s body in a shallow grave had broader implications that the sheriff could understand.

When Eric Bowman moved to Libby, he took a management position with the Zonolite Mining Company. He was also a positive influence within his father’s family, becoming a caring brother to his three half-sisters. His work with the mining company revealed evidence that company managers knew the asbestos ore poisoned many of its miners, as well as consumers of the products made from the ore. But they did nothing that would interfere with the huge profits they were making. Eric’s research put his life in jeopardy. No one had ever survived who took on this company in any way that would diminish the billions of dollars the owners were making.

These interwoven threads of abuse unfolded in a community where death was given in exchange for a paycheck from the mining company, and where child physical and sexual abuse were as commonplace as the people who knew about it were willing to allow.
