17 year old Jenna Fox wakes up from a coma after a terrible accident, not knowing who she or anyone else around her is. She doesn't know her parents or her grandmother, does not remember the accident she is told almost took her life, and has no idea who she really is, only what she is told. As time goes on, Jenna begins to remember things, or at least she thinks she does. Some of the memories she has would have taken place so long ago, she shouldn't be able to remember them. And just how has she gotten so smart? She certainly doesn't remember being a genius, but now has all sorts of amazing facts in her head. What exactly are her parents hiding?
As Jenna learns more about her accident and what happened after, she wants to believe she is also learning more about herself, though instead, feels as if she is actually losing more and more of the Jenna she really believes is true. What really happened to her? How exactly is she alive today...and does she even want to be?
The Adoration of Jenna Fox, written by Mary E. Pearson, was a page turner from the very beginning. I was hooked from the very first sentence, instantly wanting to know what this character had experienced and how she has become the girl she now is. Lots of ethical questions are brought up in the text, making this a great book discussion choice, as well. Teens and adults alike will love this thrilling novel.
