I can t say much about this book without being spoilery I do have to say that because the plot relies so much on secrecy I would ve never picked it up based on the cryptic jacket flap I didn t touch it until I had heard so many recommendations I couldn t take it I can say this The characterization is wonderful and consistent the characters are likable and the plot was surprising Even as I guessed at the twists might be through the book I was never uite right and even when I was close the author s telling was so fresh and honest that it read as true surprise Highly recommend wondering why all my reviews are five stars Because I m only reviewing my favorite books not every book I read Consider a novel s presence on my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement I can t believe I just said hearty It sounds like a stew

Pearson Å 0 characters Read The Adoration of Jenna Fox T the accident Jenna is becoming curious But she is also afraid of what she might find out if she ever gets up the courage to ask her uestionsWhat happened to Jenna Fox And who is she real. The accident was over a year ago I ve been awake for two weeks Over a year has vanished I ve gone from sixteen to seventeen A second woman has been elected president A twelfth planet has been named in the solar system The last wild polar bear has died Headline news that couldn t stir me I slept through it all Seventeen year old Jenna Fox can t remember who she is For the last year and a half she s been in a perpetual state of vegetation and upon waking she can remember nothing from her former life The memory of her family friends and even simple words like curious has vanished But even as bits and pieces of her memory begin to resurface with the help of home videos and much encouragement from her parents Jenna can t keep from feeling like something is wrong with her what her parents are telling her and with this life she s being told is her ownSet in the not so distant future The Adoration of Jenna Fox will entertain and shock its readers with suspense romance and evolutionary scienceThis is one of those books that is very hard to discuss without being spoilery but I will endeavor to do soFor Jenna Fox there a lot of things that don t add up Like how a video of her from seven years ago showing a scar on her chin doesn t compute with the unmarred flesh there now how her parents keep evading her uestions and how she can t remember anything about the accident that lead to her comaAnd her parents irrational limitations are suffocating Even when Jenna starts to get her footing she s not allowed to leave the house not allowed to go to school How is Jenna supposed to get back her life when her parents won t let her They keep telling her it s for the best but Jenna knows something offI kept trying to guess at what direction Pearson was taking this story and how science would fit into it all I didn t even come close The eventual revelation of why Jenna can t remember her life before the coma and why she feels so misplaced is as shocking as it is intriguingThe romance element is light but very effective It takes back burner to the main plot as it should IMO but it plays an essential role in the story Jenna feels lost and confused and Ethan helps her feel centered and less afraidIf you think you don t like science fiction you should try this book Sci fi is not even my third choice when browsing genres at the library but I can honestly say that this book has awakened a strong interest in the genre for me And on that note if you read this review and happen to have any sci fi recommendations or you know of any books similar to this be they YA or adult please send them my wayNote Although my opinion on this book still stands I have changed my rating for it because the two seuels to this book aren t to my liking Originally rated 4 stars now is 35 with a round down of 3

Huh interesting This book is the short first person narrative of a teenaged girl told in a string of tiny sections sometimes just a sentence or two as she and the reader piece together her memory after waking from an accident Justine Larbalestier s Liar is the short first person narrative of a teenaged girl told in a string of tiny sections sometimes just a sentence or two as she deliberately obscures the truth and jerks the reader around And yet Jenna Fox was the book I found artificial over constructed manipulativeI dunno it s an issue book and it s subtle like a blow to the head I wanted to like it than I did because there s actually a lot of nice things going on here with a mother daughter relationship and even some gestures towards a nuanced treatment of the issues But this is a book about science and the people caught bleeding on its edge and it got really far up my nose in the way discussions about what it truly means to be human always do Because these narratives about how far science should or shouldn t go are when you scrape away everything else just shittily disguised exercises in body xenophobia I mean look these are books about reconstructed bodies and reconstituted physical and neurological lives and they re all but what if I m not huuuuuuman any weep wail It s disability anxiety dressed up pretty Altered body anxiety All dependent on this notion of human as something narrow and prescriptive that you obviously should worry about losing if you ever gasp get hurt and need medical intervention Wait hang on I had a revelation though There was an author interview at the end of my audiobook in which Pearson sort of casually defined what ethics means to her And apparently what ethics means to her is how we feel about things Seriously she thinks ethics is what we feel is right And I was like holy shit that s what people think It just made sense out of a decade of my life My GodLook okay Ethics isn t about how we feeeeel You know why Because we feeeeel like assholes We feel subconscious but measurable anxiety at the presence of people with darker skin than us we feel in unarticulated but measurable ways that people always have a right to speak up for themselves unless they happen to be women we feel in subtle but measurable ways that disabled people are upsetting to look at and should just go away We are racists we are sexists we are deeply ablest we are assholes So the notion that we can just look into our feelings and find some clean instinctive right ethical answer is utter nonsense Ethics isn t what you feel in your heart and anyone who says so is giving themselves permission to be an assholeWhich explains everything about this book Because it is all about how people feel in their hearts about how they are ablest assholes who ignore things like um consent and not at all about ethics
