Title: The Adoration of Jenna Fox
Author: Mary E. Pearson
The book is set in the near future and poses a lot of scientific question and theories that could actually come to being one day. I won't giveaway the plot twist, but it's pretty interesting to think about and see how Jenna and her family deal with the ethical struggles it raises. The entire book isn't very cheerful, it's mostly desperate in tone (the desperation of Jenna's parent's, Jenna's desperation to find out who she is and also her desperation to reconnect with her cold, distant grandmother). The big question you are left with is: what would YOU do to save a human life, no matter the consequences?
I really enjoyed The Adoration of Jenna Fox overall; it was intriguing and had an interesting buildup. Still, I feel that it needed a little extra kick that would've made it complete. Jenna is a nice main character, it's easy to sympathize with her and be invested in her life and issues. 3.5 stars overall!
