The Adoration of Jenna Fox


by Mary E. Pearson

Jenna Fox has just woken up from a year-long coma. Her parents (supposedly) have given her a stack of past home videos, hoping that watching them will spark her memories. Adventure comes to Jenna in the form of school, conversations with her neighbor, community service, and more.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox was a beautiful book of self-discovery, self-learning, and self-acceptance. Jenna was a very relatable character, and her emotions and memories were conveyed really well. The science fiction aspect of the book was interesting, and it weaved in with the realistic fiction elements of the story. Overall, this book is a must-read!

I liked this book, but I didn't think it was brilliant as I had expected to (just because so many other bloggers had). The downside of blog book reviews - starting a book with unrealistically high expectations.

That was a really good review. I've read this book before, though I think you made it sound a bit better than it really was
