Book Review: The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary Pearson

The Adoration of Jenna Foxis the story of Jenna Fox (duh) who wakes up suddenly from a year-and-a-half long coma. She can tell some things are different. She has no memories of who she was and no understanding of who she is. Her story unfolds as she discovers it herself when memories and other pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox
This was a really well-written, interesting, and powerful book. I loved the ethics ideas explored. I loved the indentity-crisis theme. I loved that I was able to relate to the feelings and emotions Jenna felt, even though I am not in anything like her situation (or her age for that matter). A really great book that even adults can relate to (says this adult). [I don't know if it would technically be sci-fi, maybe more futuristic?]

s-factor: !

A smattering of words throughout.

mrg-factor: none.
Just kissing (I don't think that counts as mrg...)

v-factor: ->

An intense situation that is rather quickly resolved and in a pretty non-violent way.

Overall rating: ****
