Adoration of Jenna Fox
Pearson, Mary. E. 2008. The Adoration of Jenna Fox.
I used to be someone. Someone named Jenna Fox. That's what they tell me. But I am more than a name. More than they tell me. More than the facts and statistics they fill me with. More than the video clips they make me watch. More. But I'm not sure what. (1)
And so begins The Adoration of Jenna Fox one of the most original and amazing coming-of-age stories that I've read in quite a while. Who is Jenna Fox? Why is her life, her past such a mystery? It all began with a car accident. A coma. Who is she now? What does she want to be? Why are there so many pieces that don't quite add up?
The Adoration of Jenna Fox had me at hello. And there's a good chance it will have you at hello as well. It's well written. It's pacing is incredible. And the writing? Amazing! And it's definitely definitely recommended.
