Add it on Goodreads!
Who is Jenna Fox? Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn’t remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers?
This fascinating novel represents a stunning new direction for acclaimed author Mary Pearson. Set in a near future America, it takes readers on an unforgettable journey through questions of bio-medical ethics and the nature of humanity. Mary Pearson’s vividly drawn characters and masterful writing soar to a new level of sophistication.
This story was a very interesting read. I don’t read very much science fiction books (honestly, I don’t know why because I end up enjoying the ones I do read) and this one was pretty enjoyable. It was a bit slow at the start since she has been in a coma for about a year and is having to relearn things, but when secrets start coming out, it really starts to pick up. I really liked the writing style for the book and thought the descriptions were really great.
Jenna was a very deep and thought provoking character. Some of the things she thought about were very profound. I liked the fact she wasn’t ever whiny, just confused and wanting answers.
There wasn’t a lot of romance in this book, so don’t expect a sweet love story. This is definitely all about Jenna and what happened to her. It was a bit predictable in places, but still pretty good in spite of figuring a lot out.
A good science fiction read, good main character, great descriptions, a bit predictable.
