The Adoration of Jenna Fox: A Review

I've read a lot of books lately. This one is a sweet, little read. The story revolves around a girl who has been in a coma for a year and wakes up with no memories at all. As she gradually gains her memories back, she realized just how much her life has changed since the accident that left her near death.

This book had an interesting style. It's written in first person present tense. I'd never really been a fan of this POV, but I've been reading more books written that way and it's really growing on me. At different points throughout the narrative, there are sections that are written in a short, almost poetic style. They really emphasized the way Jenna felt about something.

The way the story is revealed felt very natural and flowed well. Even though there is an element of sci-fi to it, it wasn't glaring. The only thing that left me wanting more was the last two pages. They weren't bad, mind you. They just were kind of abrupt.

All in all, if you are looking for a quick and entertaining read that will leave you thinking about life, give this one a try. Have a great weekend!
