Q: Happy Mother's Day! Who is your favorite mom from fiction?


Room is a hard read. The story is told from the point-of-view of a five year old who lived with his Ma in a room where Old Nick held her in captivity for seven years.

Now, Ma could have completely lost her mind. But instead she fought for her son. She made a schedule in which they would push the furniture and run around for exercise. Or draw on the toilet paper, since they had no paper....just so many ideas to shield him  from the horror and give him whatever life she could.
