Jack is now five and, like any little boy, excited at the prospect of presents and cake. But although Jack is a normal child in many ways, his upbringing is far from ordinary: Jack's entire life has been spent in a room that measures just 12 square feet; as far as he's concerned, Room is the entire world. He shares this world with his mother, with Plant, and TV and his friends the cartoon characters - but Jack knows that nothing else he sees on the screen is real. Old Nick, on the other hand, is all too real, but only visits at night - when Jack is meant to be asleep in Wardrobe. And only Old Nick has the code to Door, which is otherwise locked...Told in Jack's voice, 'Room' is the story of a mother's love for her son, and of a young boy's innocence.
