Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Mary E. Pearson

Everything is different Seventeen year old Jenna Fox has just awoken from a year long coma so she's been told and she is still recovering from the terrible accident that caused it But what. I can't say much about this book without being spoilery I do have to say that because the plot relies so much on secrecy I would've never picked it up based on the cryptic jacket flap I didn't touch it until I had heard so many recommendations I couldn't take it I can say this The characterization is wonderful and consistent the characters are likable and the plot was surprising Even as I guessed at the twists might be through the book I was never uite right and even when I was close the author's telling was so fresh and honest that it read as true surprise Highly recommend wondering why all my reviews are five stars Because I'm only reviewing my favorite books not every book I read Consider a novel's presence on my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement I can't believe I just said hearty It sounds like a stew

The Adoration of Jenna FoxHappened before that She's been given home movies chronicling her entire life which spark memories to surface But are the memories really hers And why won't anyone in her family talk abou. Set in the not too distant future this is a story that deals with medical ethics and how far is too far to preserve human life Jenna Fox 17 has just awoken from an 18 month long coma following a horrific accident At first she has no memory of who she is or what happened but she remembers details bit by bit She gets the sense that there is to the story than her parents lead her to believe especially regarding the secrecy of her accident and the self imposed isolation of the family Throughout much of the book the reader is not uite sure who to trust Although science fiction there is a minor romance side plot between Jenna and Ethan a boy from school with a shady past The conflict grows as additional characters are introduced Alyss who is a victim of the future's regulation of antibiotics and she has lost limbs due to bacterial infections and Dane another shady character whose complete story and true nature are unfortunately never cleared up Also Mr Bender the neighbor who years ago had a change of identity his story remains a bit fuzzy throughout chapters are very brief and interspersed with well done poems relaying Jenna's emotionsreal spoiler Overall an interesting read about the length a parent will go to to save a child as well as what makes a person real and were does the soul go in such a situation Jenna has an identity crisis is she the real Jenna while only 10% if she is real then what happened to the original Jennaand her soul Jenna cannot age does not eat breathe etc She essentially is a medical creation with the memories of her former life uploaded into hershe has gone from the computer box storage her hell for 18 months where they kept her mind moving into a man made Blue gel storage There is also the suspense of her illegal status and whether or not she will be found out and if so what will happen to her She is torn between resentment of her new state and gratitude of life Her potential adversary Alyss who opposes artificial life as unethical eventually becomes her peer when her body is dying and her parents plead with Jenna's despite Alyss's dying wish to turn Jenna in The afterward is 260 years later and we know that Alyss and Jenna live together and that Jenna and Ethan spent 70 years together many years after which Jenna has his child presumably through surrogate or the like Apparently in the future the laws and perceptions have changed and then people like her are not illegal however 10% is the minimum and then they are designed to age and die out after a normal life expectancy unlike Jenna and Alyss who do not age and whom Jenna's father listed as a 2 200 year life expectancy260 years later Jenna is still around and has plans to move back to cold Boston where the climate is inhospitable to her typebecause no parent should outlive the child interesting book lots of discussion points However I think it is too complex for the average Cafe Book reader

I love to read good books This is one of themI was a bit suspicious about it after seeing that the reviews were not that great so I was a bit afraid to read it I love surprises too If you want a lot of action this is not a book for you If you want something really funny this is not a book for you If you want a 'teen love story' this is not a book for you If you want something about future and technology and stuff like that well you got it this is not for you eitherThis is a book about being human about being alive about second chances about how precious the memories are about life about how far will a parent go for a child I loved to see how the memories came back to Jenna I loved to see her realize the truth and even if it is written in a strangedifferent style I loved that too about itI liked Jenna mostly I liked the fact that her thoughts came in bits short propositions sometimes not related one with another I liked Lily I liked Ethan and I loved the fact that it was not that kind of I see you I am madly in love with you story or that I am a teenager in love so I only think about that boy story either And I liked the ending even if I think that it was a bit too fast compared to everything else in this bookThe only think that I missed and wanted so badly in the end was some sense of responsibility from Jenna's part I wished for her to understand that it was not all about her feelings they made her think she was the center of the world so she acted like that and made some bad judgements I wanted her to realize that all those people starting with her parents risked everything for her and she was about to make them lose it all view spoiler She never took this into consideration while not telling that someone knew about her secret and there was a chance to be found by the authorities It was all about good luck that she had her happy ending hide spoiler
