book thoughts: The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson


Mary E. Pearson

Jenna Fox has just awoken from a year long coma and she doesn’t remember anything.  Not her family, not her friends, not even the accident that put her in the coma; her entire life is a mystery.  Her mother and father seem to act strange around her, and the grandmother she once adored hardly gives her a second glance. 

As Jenna begins to watch the home movies, lovingly recorded by her family covering every year of her existence, she begins to remember her pass but she also discovers things about her future.

The tag line:  How far would you go to save someone you love?

This book is a really quick read, I finished it on the plane to Florida last week so 2.5 hours.  It was a lot of fun trying to figure out the puzzle of Jenna’s story and even though I pretty much knew her secret after the first few chapters, I still wasn’t sure where it was going to end up.

A perfect beach read and even better for a book discussion group, especially a parent & tween/teen discussion…(yes, I’m already plotting a program). 

3.5 outta 5 stars.
