The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Rating: 5/5 Stars - Favorite

Seventeen-year-old Jenna Fox was in a tragic accident over a year ago and was in a coma for most of that time. She has lost her memory and cannot remember anything from before the accident; Not even her favorite color or who her friends were. As memories start to flood back one by one and she learns the circumstances around her accident, she learns about who she was and who she has become and a little more than she ever could have imagined. This book is about what lengths a parent would go to to save their child and what about us really makes us human but it is so much more.

This is such a beautifully written story that really surprised me in the details. This book should not be limited to the Young Adult label, as it will be loved by all age groups. I don't want to say too much about the story because telling any of the good pieces of the story will give away what makes it so wonderful. I think it's better to read it for yourself and see, you will not be disappointed.

I would absolutely recommend this book and I will be telling all of my friends to read it.

Favorite Quote: "Where we are going, I don't know. It doesn't seem to be the place that is important but the steps in between."
