The Adoration of Jenna Fox

by Mary E. Pearson

I picked up this ARC at the PLA conference.

Seventeen-year-old Jenna Fox has many questions. She's woken up from a coma and doesn't know who she is. Her parents make her watch films of herself from a very young age to the present, but none of what she sees is familiar. What was the nature of her accident? And why can't she remember anything?

Periodically, Jenna does have a memory, but the memory seems inappropriate, like her baptism. How could she remember that? Jenna has other questions about her present. Why are they living in California? Why is her father commuting back to Boston? And why does her grandmother appear to hate her?

All will be revealed, dear reader. And it's far more complicated than anyone could have ever imagined it to be.
