What if you woke up one year later? The Adoration of Jenna Fox

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Jenna Fox wakes up one year after the Accident, in a new house in California with her mom and grandmother. Her father, a famous scientist, lives in Boston. Where are her friends? Jenna watches her  memories on DVD, one for each year. She doesn't feel quite herself and strives to figure out who she is, although her parents try to hide it.

An artist next door. Creepy boy down the street. New friends at school. And the mystery of who she is.

 The writing is crisp and suspenseful, yet delves into bioethics and religion with satisfying depth.

  1. Nice review. I liked this novel a lot, too--the tense relationship between Jenna and her mom, all the secrets, the creepy computer stuff (esp. at the end!).
