Teen Review: “The Adoration of Jenna Fox” by Mary E. Pearson
Jenna Fox is a 17-year-old girl who just woke up from over a year-long coma, or so she is told. Jenna can’t remember who she used to be before a terrible car accident almost killed her. Now, looking through fresh eyes, Jenna starts to notice things that just don’t make sense. Why did her family move across the country from Boston to California shortly before her “unexpected” recovery? Why does she walk funny, and what is wrong with her hands that can’t seem to lace together? Not that many years in the future from us, technology makes it possible to create limbs and save lives close to gone, but laws prohibit how much of a person can be manufactured. The more and more Jenna digs, the less and less legal she finds herself. Is this new life wrong?
