I will never forget one fall day in my single years, I had a particularly rough afternoon at work and my love life was in the toilet. I felt horrible about life and I got home to find a package on my door with this book inside and note from my Aunt Kay: "God thinks you're wonderful, and so do I!" I still have that book and my Aunt Kay is one of my favorite people always.
Great book. About a little boy named Jack and his Ma. They have been living in captivity since before Jack was born. His Ma was kidnapped by a deviant man. This is Jack's story about him, his Ma and Old Nick (the man who keeps them in ROOM). Very intriguing. I read it in one day.
