Description

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the world. . . . It’s where hewas born. It’s where he and Ma eat and sleep and play andlearn. There are endless wonders that let loose Jack’s imagination — the snake under Bed that he constructs out of eggshells;the imaginary world projected through the TV; the coziness ofWardrobe beneath Ma’s clothes, where she tucks him in safelyat night, in case Old Nick comes. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it’s the prison whereshe’s been held since she was nineteen — for seven long years.Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life forhim in that eleven-by-eleven foot space. But Jack’s curiosity isbuilding alongside Ma’s own desperation, and she knows thatRoom cannot contain either indefinitely. . . . Told in the inventive,funny and poignant voice of Jack, Room is a celebration ofresilience — and a powerful story of a mother and son whoselove lets them survive the impossible
