The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson (a review!)

The Adoration of Jenna Fox The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
How far would a parent go to save their child?  How far should they go?  Who gets to say?

Jenna Fox wasn’t supposed to survive the accident. But she did.  Well, not on her own.  When she woke from her coma (was it a coma?) she had nothing.  No memories, no history, nothing.  But was it really lost?  Does she want her past back?  Does it matter?

This book reaches into very uncomfortable places to explore who we are, what makes us who we are, and where our essence (our soul?) lives.

I liked this book very much.  The story is told with stark and lonely feelings throughout as we walk the steps that the new Jenna takes after waking.  The relationships are real, the situation is believable, the thoughts ring true, the grandmother is awesome.

As a parent who has lost a child, much of the parents’ thoughts resonated with me through the story.  I have been in that place wondering what lengths would we take, could we take, should we take…

A must read. Thought provoking. Real. Unreal.
