Asia Michelle AM Teens Book Of The Day Room by Emma Donoghue
The book of the day is Room by Emma Donoghue, a national best seller. I choose this book because I found this book very interesting, it is written from the point of view of a 5-year-old. It was fascinating to see the world through the eyes of a child. He didn’t even know the world because his mom told him that everything he saw on TV was not real and all imaginary. He was confined to a small room with fewer things a normal child would have, yet his mind created a whole new world. In the book, Room is home to Jack but to Ma is the prison that she was held for 7 years. Through Ma’s love for her first son created a life for him in an 11*11 foot space, but Jack’s curiously built alongside Ma own desperation, and she know that the room cannot contain either much longer. This book was made into an independent drama film directed by Lenny Abrahamson. Release dates September 4, 2015 (Telluride) and October 16, 2015 (United States).
