Description - The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson

'Why can I remember the details of the French Revolution but I can't remember if I ever had a best friend?'

When Jenna wakes following her accident, her recovery is slow. One day she can't walk; the next she can. One day her right eyelid droops; the next it doesn't.

But at what cost has her recovery come? What are her parents hiding from her? And why does her grandmother, Lily, hate her so?

When the memories do come, they're more than anyone bargained for, and as Jenna struggles to work out who she is, and what exactly makes us who we are, one thing becomes very clear: Jenna Fox is no ordinary teenage girl.

Who is Jenna Fox?

'I read this book in less than one day - it's a real page-turner! I found Jenna's story compelling, and every character is unique down to the last detail.Nine and a half out of ten.' Lucienne, 18

Book Review: Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson - Reviewed by (18 Jul 2011)

Before the accident she was Jenna Fox, a sixteen year old who followed the rules, who was her parents' miracle child, who was perfect. After the accident she was no longer sure she was Jenna Fox. She was no longer sure who Jenna Fox was.

When she awoke she cried, she didn't remember doing that. When she awoke her family was with her; her watching father who was soon to leave her, her over protective mother who would not leave her side, and her grandmother who now despised her. They were all there but she didn't remember them.

When she awoke it was to a different world, a different city on the other side of the country, a different house unfilled and dilapidated, a different room bare and impersonal. What had happened for them to move so far, what had happened to all her belongings, what had happened to her?

As everyone around her tries to convince her of who she was she realises she no longer knows what she is. What is she if she can not understand the world around her, if words she once knew escape her, if voices she once heard still call to her? Is who she is now enough to exist, enough to be loved? Can she still be Jenna Fox without knowing anything about her?

The Adoration Of Jenna Fox is about definitions, acceptance and ethics. A captivating and moving mystery of life and change that demonstrates the blinding power of love, and how far people will go to save the ones they love.
