Have you read Room by Emma Donoghue? If so, you know how good it is. If not, do! This book is so unique and compelling. I loved it.
Jack is five years old and lives in Room with Ma. His ma was kidnapped at age 19 and Jack was the result of the repeated rapes by her kidnapper.
The beginning of the book is all about Ma and Jack's small life inside Room. It's exhausting to think about how they pass the time and have to live in their tiny world.
Then the book opens up with some changes that I won't get into. I don't want to spoil if for you if you haven't read Room. It's really an amazing novel from a child's point of view. It's charming and funny and scary, all wrapped up in Rug.
