That Adoration of Jenna Fox

The Adoration of Jenna Fox
By Mary E. Pearson; Henry Holt and Company 2008

Summary:Who is Jenna Fox? Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn't remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers?




My Review: After waking up from a year long coma, Jenna Fox finds herself very lost and confuse on how her situation came to be. How is it that she can remember things in history, but nothing about herself or her life? She watches home videos and remembers a few things about her past, but something just isn't right.

Ahhh! This is an exciting gripping novel with suspense and mystery.This is definitely a sci-fi book because it takes place is the near future. There are ideas that are brought in this book are so intriguing and unique. I know that Mary E. Pearson has quality books because the book Scribbler of Dreams (I still need to review that one)  This books is fascinating and kept me wanting more and more. Just read it!

Watch Out For: Violence, brief language, flashbacks, natural disasters, some kissing, and drinking

  1. Hey, I just happened upon your blog randomly. I'm an English major and I'm in an adolescent literature class this semester and though I'd suggest a few books to you: The Book Thief by Zusak(my new favorite!), Speak by Anderson, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Alexie, Push. I've loved all of them so much! Definitely look into The Book Thief if nothing else!
