Anyone else who’s read Room can probably empathize with how creeped out I am by the story of the three girls held captive in Ohio for a decade.
“They said a 6-year-old also was found in the home.”
The book was disturbing enough when I read it a couple of years ago. But with the news from this week, I can’t get the book out of my head … and it is seriously creepy. I don’t want to imagine what those girls went through. And, because of Room, I kind of can … and it’s terrible.
