52 {Books} in 52: The Adoration of Jenna Fox

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson is a book about Jenna Fox, a teenage girl who wakes up from a year-long coma and has trouble remembering her past. She has no trouble quoting things she would have learned in school, but she draws a complete blank when it comes to her personal life. Jenna begins the search of uncovering the truth and revealing the secret to what happened to her and what she finds out along the way is a remarkably troubling question: how far are you willing to go for the one you love?

The story occurs in the future and you get a glimpse of the medical possibilities and of all the ethical issues we may face. For me, the book was a bit unsettling and it palpitated with underlying tension. I felt a discomfort that increased the more I read and didn't go away once I was done with the book. This book didn't leave me with a happy ending; instead, it left me with an ending that had me thinking about life, what is living, and what you are willing to do to keep life going.
