The Adoration of Jenna Fox
Jenna was in an accident. She does not remember it. She does not remember anything. She was in a coma for over a year. She just woke up two weeks ago. Jenna is now 17; she has blond hair and blue eyes. She does not remember people- even her mother, father, and grandma, but her father says that will come. If she watches the videos. For some reason, her parents documented most of her life as she grew up. Jenna uses the videos to help her remember. Soon, Jenna begins to remember bits and pieces of her former life. But she knows something is wrong. She was not supposed to remember things that happened when she was less than two years old.
With knowledge come questions- lots of them. But there is one question Jenna is afraid to ask. One question no one will answer. What happened in the accident? Jenna finds out lots of things about people, herself, and the outside world through her neighbor, and friends at school.
For a girl that just woke up two weeks ago and remembers nothing, Jenna asks some very deep questions, questions that get the reader thinking too.
