The Adoration of Jenna Fox – Mary E Pearson

The Adoration of Jenna Foxjennafox

Part science fiction and part teenage self-discovery, The Adoration of Jenna Fox is a curious blending of the two genres that is as unsettling as it is thought-provoking.

A gripping, utterly engrossing thriller set in a future that may be closer than we think…

Who is Jenna Fox? 17-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn’t remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers?
This is a very engrossing, futuristic psychological thriller about a girl brought back from the brink of death after a near-fatal accident. Desperate to save their only daughter, the parents use a highly illegal procedure to rebuild her body, memoires, and feelings- but at what cost? Set in a near-future America, this novel will take you on an unforgettable journey through questions of bio-medical ethics and the nature of humanity.

Mary E Pearsonis the author of several books for teens, including A Room on Lorelei St and Scribbler of Dreams. Her books have received many honours, including the Golden Kite Award, the J Hunter Award for YA Fiction and the South Carolina YA Book Award. The Adoration of Jenna Fox has sold translations rights all over the world and also feature-film rights to 20th Century Fox
