Review - The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Seventeen-year-old Jenna Fox has just woken up from a coma after a horrible accident she barely survived one year ago. She has no memory of the accident or her life before that day. She watches videos of herself as a child in an attempt to spark some memories. As she slowly starts to remember bits and pieces of her life, she discovers that there are more questions than answers. What really happened after her accident? And why does her family seem intent on hiding the truth from her? 

This compelling story set in a near future really makes you think about questions of medical ethics: How far would you go to save a loved one’s life? Can science ever go too far? Just because we can do something…should we? Fans of Neal Shusterman’s Unwind may also enjoy this suspenseful and thought-provoking read. The sequel to The Adoration of Jenna Fox, The Fox Inheritance, comes out this fall.

I really liked this one! It was on the Bluebonnet list a few years ago and pretty popular here in TX. Mary comes here in October...can't wait!
