Irish-Canadian author Emma Donoghue published Room in 2010, a harrowing story of a little boy (and his mother) kept captive by a kidnapper. The child’s name is Jack; this is the only life he has ever known. The novel won multiple awards.
The movie version has now been nominated for multiple Oscars. You can find the book in Adult Fiction and in Audio on Lennoxville Library shelves.
