Book Recommendation of the Week: The Adoration of Jenna Fox
Golden Kite Award for Fiction (2009), South Carolina Book Award Nominee for Young Adult Book Award (2010), TAYSHAS High School Reading List (2009)
Who is Jenna Fox?
Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a year-long coma, and she's still recovering from the terrible accident that caused it. Her parents show her home movies of her life, her memories, but she has no recollection. Is she really the same girl she sees on the screen?
Little by little, Jenna begins to remember. Along with the memories come questions—questions no one wants to answer for her. What really happened after the accident?
In this fascinating novel, acclaimed author Mary E. Pearson presents an unforgettable look at one human life and a glimpse into a possible future that may be closer than we think.
Why It's My Pick of the Week:
I couldn't put it down. Simple as that. I had to know what happened to Jenna and read this book straight through to the end. Also, I love dystopian fiction so this was right up my alley. Have you read it? What did you think? Until next time....Kristi
