Summary
Jenna Fox has just awakened from a year-long coma following a horrible car accident. As she recovers she tries to piece together the fragments of memories that are returning to her. As she begins to fill in the gaps of her previous life, she makes a horrifying discovery about how far her parents went to save her life.
Critique
Pearson thoughtfully explores issues of bioethics, science, faith, family, and what it means to be human. The Adoration of Jenna Fox will leave readers asking the question `just because we can do something, should we?` Recommended for readers who think they don't like science fiction.
