November Cafe Library Book

We are reading Room by Emma Donoghue for November's Cafe Library. This is also a Battle of the Book title so kill two birds with one stone! I have to admit I didn't want to read this book because the premise is a bit depressing/scary but after I started reading it, I could not put it down! I was going to write Battle of the Books practice questions for my WEMTA battle committee but I didn't even want to stop to write the questions I was so engrossed with the book. Here's a summary: "Five-year-old Jack has spent his life living in an eleven-by-eleven foot space his mother calls Room and while Jack uses his imagination to create wondrous fantasies to entertain himself, his mother dreads the day her son begins to question why they must remain in Room and tries to find a way to escape.
