Sometime in the near future, Jenna Fox, 17, awakens from an 18-month-long coma following a devastating accident, her memory nearly blank. She attempts reorientation by watching videos of her childhood, "recorded beyond reason" by worshipful parents, but mysteries proliferate. Jenna can recite passages from Thoreau yet can't remember having any friends. As memories return, however, Jenna starts picking at the explanation her parents have spun until it unravels.


The Adoration of Jenna Fox will definitley go into my top favorite books list! The voice of Jenna Fox is undeniably rich and thoughtful, sometimes hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking it will blow your world apart. The plot is breath taking and wonderful in it's own strange way, unlike any other novel i've ever read. It is simialar however, to books like Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, which studies an dystopian future where humans are striving to become invincible.

It's starts off on a mysterious and suspicious note as Jenna tries to remember vital parts of her life like best friends and family. You think it would be uplifting for someone to wake up from a year long coma but Jenna's gifted voice convinces you otherwise. Mary E. Pearson does a wonderful job of taking your mind on an unconsicience journey and you find yourself questioning things from what you eat to enviromental causes. You NEED to read this book!
