Review - The adoration of Jenna Fox - Mary E Pearson

Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a year-long coma, and she's still recovering from the terrible accident that caused it. Her parents show her home movies of her life, her memories, but she has no recollection. Is she really the same girl she sees on the screen?

Little by little, Jenna begins to remember. Along with the memories come questions—questions no one wants to answer for her. What really happened after the accident?

In this fascinating novel, acclaimed author Mary E. Pearson presents an unforgettable look at one human life and a glimpse into a possible future that may be closer than we think


***
This was a fantastic book. I am deliberately only going to write a short review as I don't want to give anything away. The story is based on the story of Jenna a girl who has been in a coma following an accident. The story twists and turns throughout and keeps you guessing throughout. It deals with a range of moral questions which make you think. A thoroughly good read which will keep you guessing until the very end.

Understandable having a short, spoiler free review of this! I found it hard to review as well!
