Room - Emma Donoghue This book took me by surprise. I had heard it was good, but had no idea that it would grip me so much. The beginning is relatively difficult to get through, but it's worth it.

It shows the resilience of children and how what we perceive as inhumane and insurmountable, might not feel the same to a child. I really hope this gets made into a move (properly).
