It's Jack's birthday, and he's excited about turning five. Jack lives with his Ma in ROOM, which has a locked door and measures 11 feet by 11 feet. He loves watching TV, and the cartoon characters he calls friends, but he knows that nothing he sees on screen is real. Until the day Ma admits that there's a world outside. Told in Jack's voice, ROOM is the story of a mother and son whose love lets them survive the impossible. Unsentimental and sometimes funny, devastating yet uplifting, ROOM is a novel like no other.
