Room - Emma Donoghue What an amazing story! I cannot recommend this enough. This is the story of a little boy, Jack, who has been raised in captivity with his mother, a kidnap victim. Their entire world consists of an eleven by eleven foot sound-proof room. The story is told by Jack, now five years old.

I wasn't sure how this would read, being told entirely in the voice of a five year old, especially with such a disturbing story but it works. It really works. Read it. I've never read anything like it. It's so much more than I can say in a review. Just read it.
