The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

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?


You've probably hear this before but this book will be so hard to review without spoiling it. It took me a while to write this review because I just couldn't figure out my feelings for this book. I came into this story like the mojority of people who read it not knowing what to expect. The cover was beautiful. The synopsis intriguing. So I dived in. At the end when the story ended I was disappointed.

I guess I wanted more from this story. More of what exaclty; I wasn't sure, but I had this feeling that the author was holding back. Maybe she was trying not to stand on a deffinite side of the conflict in this story. If that's the case I understand. If that isn't the case then...I am left very confused and a bit sad because I was really excited as I got into the story but turning the last page, closing the book, no feelings No excitement, no contentment. Nothing. Anyway, I gave it two stars on Goodreads because I didn't love or hate it.

PS: Looking over this review made me feel so embarassed. I sound so lost. But in the end that is how I felt and I guess I will have to live with it. Maybe one day during a period of enlightenment I will go back and read this story and I'll finally get what the majority sees in this book.
