“A 17 year old girl(Jenna) wakes up from a year long coma. Most of her memories are gone but piece by piece they start coming back. There was an accident and she remembers two very good friends. Where are they? Why are her parents so protective of her? When she cuts herself very badly one day she sees something very horrifying! Now she wonders WHAT she is. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson will give you shivers.4 stars”
“This book had been a favorite of mine for years. The first time I read it was for a school summer reading assignment and I fell in love with the story. It’s been a a few years since I have read it so I decided I needed to revisit it again. And it did not disappoint. I’m not sure if I can attribute the excitement to forgetting the smaller details in the time I’ve been away or just the story being so fascinating. But it was worth revisiting again. Jenna is fighting for a chance to be a girl who can make mistakes and choices for herself. To feel human. This starts long before she has to come to grasp with her not so human form. The pressures of perfections and hardships of not wanting to disappoint the people that love you, that adore you, can make even the most sane of us, lose our minds. Overall I find that I understand Jenna well, even if there are obvious differences separating us. Finding our place as a human and becoming painfully aware of humanity is something all of us must go through at some point.”
