Staff Recommendation: The Adoration of Jenna Fox, by Mary E. Pearson

The Adoration of Jenna Fox
How much of you can be replaced or enhanced and still leave you “human?” A person with artificial legs is still human, of course. But what if 90% of you has been replaced? Are you alive? Do you “deserve” to stay alive? Who gets to draw those lines?

17-year-old Jenna awakens from a coma and is told that she barely survived a terrible accident. As her memories slowly return and she discovers memories that she shouldn’t have, she begins to question who – and what – she is. What have her parents risked to save her life? This terrific new novel for teens works both as a medical mystery and a science fiction story, with great characters asking important questions.
