Room - By E. Donoghue

I wanted to share a book I just read with all of you. Room by Emma Donoghue

This book is a great fictional read with a remarkable story that sheds light on the power of hope, love, and perseverance. Jack is a 5 year old adorable kid who was born and raised for his first 5 years within an 11'x11' room that he knows to be his home. Jack is a magical thinker and a brilliant observer, and his mother raised him while being prisoner to "Old Nick" who forced various forms of abuse upon her. In this story Jack and his mother paint a clear mental picture for the reader of what it would be like to life within such confines, while also sharing a story about love and the courage it takes to fight for and support that love.This book blew me away. I recommend it highly to all avid readers, as well as those who live life with a sense of appreciation and wonder.

A great interactive website for this book is available at
