The Sequel to Jenna Fox
The Fox Inheritance is a more complex novel in scope than the first book, The Adoration of Jenna Fox. This story follows Kara and Locke as they wake up 260 years after the Accident in the home of the potentially nefarious Dr. Gatsbro. During the first novel, I feel the character development was more intimate; I felt closer to Jenna Fox, whereas I didn't feel like I could truly understand Locke and Kara's motivations in the sequel. However, the picture of the futuristic world Pearson paints is intriguing enough to fuel the story.

It is a little bit overdramatic.
