Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Norah Piehl

Imagine a room. It's 11 feet by 11 feet about the size of your average bedroom, perhaps. Inside is a bed, a dresser, a table, a shelf on the wall, a trash can, a television, a small refrigerator and a stove, and a small bathroom with a tub. Everything you own is in the room.
