The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary Pearson

June 17, 2008

Part science-fiction, part thriller, part mystery – the essence of this story is like the discovery of Jenna herself.  Jenna is on a quest to discover who she is, making this a very typical teen story, but this complex search to regain her memory after a severe accident is extraordinary.  This book deserves a spot on your next book discussion group for the story of Jenna’s relationships with her parents, her grandmother and her friends.  The beauty lies in the exploration of the soul and the ethics as much as the biology of who we are.  This is a must read for all of us. I would have chosen to read this based on the cover alone and would have been well rewarded.
