Summary
Jack is five and, like any little boy, excited at the prospect of presents and cake. He's looking forward to telling his friends it's his birthday, too. But although Jack is a normal child in many ways, loving, funny, bright, full of energy and questions. His upbringing is far from ordinary : Jack's entire life has been spent in a single room that measures just 12 feet by 12 feet ; as far as he's concerned, Room is the entire world
Summary
A 5-year-old narrates a riveting story about his life growing up in a single room where his mother aims to protect him from the man who has held her prisoner for seven years since she was a teenager.
