The Adoration of Jenna Fox

The Adoration of Jenna Fox

Imagine waking one day and remembering almost nothing about your life. How do you move forward from there? Or do you try to recapture the past? Do you reinvent or rediscover yourself?

Jenna has these problems when she wakes from a coma. Who is she? How did she get here? Jenna eventually comes to understand that her problems include another question – What is she?

Set in a future where scientific and medical advances have endangered the environment and life as we know it, Jenna must struggle with the discovery that she is not who or what she has been led to believe. How much is ‘human’? What about her soul?

At first I was a bit taken aback with Jenna. The writing seems to be disjointed, not quite nonsensical, but not necessarily logical either. But as the story progresses and Jenna finds more words to describe her conundrums, I was hooked! How far would you go to save your child? How far is too far?

Gripping reading with a fine cast of characters and some fairly involved ethical thinking! Loved it!!!
