Room by Emma Donoghue

Reviewed By: K.R.
5-year Jack has been living in Room for his whole life with his Ma. The things in Room are all he's ever known. Every night this man named Old Nick comes by and Jack has to sleep in the wardrobe because his Ma does not want Old Nick to see Jack at all. Since Jack doesn't know anything outside of Room, he thinks that Room is the only thing in the world, which it is not. As the story unfolds, you will learn things about Ma's background and why Jack and his mother are in Room.
Why I Picked it Up: I picked it up because someone recommended it to me.
Why I Finished It: It was a great book and I could not put it down!
I’d Give this Book To: I would recommend this book to mature readers, like 8th grade and up.

**Librarian Side Note** Did you know this book was on the 2014 Abraham Lincoln Award Nominee list?  Look for the book display in the Teen Area for more books on the list!
