This book is just simply amazing, although it does seem a little weird at first. The plot line is awesome, and the writing style of the author is wonderful. This book gets 7.8 pens, because it’s not your average book. It actually–wait. Don’t want to spoil it for you!
Seventeen-year-old Jenna Fox has just woken up from a year-long coma, and she is still recovering from the horrible accident that caused it. But before that? Jenna can’t remember–her mind is a blank slate, with no memories, from those of who her friends were to simple definitions of words, such as “time.” Jenna is given home movies chronicling her entire life, sparking memories to surface. But these memories are so exact, so precise and perfectly remembered that Jenna questions if the memories are really hers. And why won’t her family ever talk about the accident that left her like this? Jenna is becoming more curious and, in doing so, learning the definition of the word “curious.” Jenna is afraid of what she might find if she ever gets up the courage to ask her questions. What really happened to Jenna Fox? What about her friends? And who is she, really?
If you look at my rating (7.8 pens) you’ll see that I knocked it down 0.2 from my average “good book” rating. That’s because there was a plot spoiler that I guessed near the beginning of the book, when it was supposed to be a surprising thing to learn.
Hope you like!
Age Rating: Kind of mature, for a little bit of language.
