We Love It: Five-year-old
Jack has spent his entire life trapped with his mother in a predator's lair,
until she plans their escape—and his world is upended. What could
have been a cheesy, ripped-from-the-headlines drama became a singular literary
achievement because of the brilliant way Donoghue told it, through Jack's
does a child raised in almost unimaginably harrowing circumstances grow up?
Whom does he love? And how? Call it, simply, Jack.
