The Adoration of Jenna Fox

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

My rating:  4/5
Summary (from 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?

My review:  The Adoration of Jenna Fox was a very compelling book, one that made me want to know more about Jenna Fox and the accident.  I'll try not to ruin it for those who haven't read it in this review!

Jenna was a bit difficult to read about in some bits, because she was quite difficult to connect to.  Although in most books I wouldn't like that, this was an exception.  I think that the author might have been going for that when she wrote the book, and, honestly, Jenna is so different from everyone in the world right now that anyone could have difficulty connecting to her.  She was a wonderful character!

The plot satisfied me, too.  It was well written, full of twists and turns about what was happening to Jenna Fox.  Unfortunately, there are still a few things that I don't understand about her and what she is.  It was interesting to watch the relationship between Jenna and her grandmother grow stronger throughout the book, and I could comprehend why her grandma didn't like her very much in the beginning.

The ending didn't quite meet up to my expectations.  I felt that too much time was missed out, and it doesn't go into enough detail about what happened, and it's like Jenna doesn't care that all her family was dying while she was living on and on.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox was, overall, a great book!  My favourite thing about it was that it was very original; I've never seen a book that's anything like it!

    I agree, it was tough to relate to Jenna at times, but Jenna was completely different from everyone else. It was nice to know what happened to Jenna, but I felt that the ending left things hanging a bit. It was a great book though! Have you seen the other cover for it? Awesome review!
