Jenna Fox has just woken up from a year-long coma. She doesn't remember the accident that put her in a coma. She doesn't remember how old she is. She doesn't remember her parents. She doesn't even remember her own name. Her parents do their best to spark Jenna's memory, even giving her hours of home videos that chronicled Jenna's life. Bit by bit Jenna's memory returns, and with it come questions about who she really is; questions that no one seems to want to answer. Is she the same Jenna from before the accident?

This book is a futuristic science fiction novel, introducing a world where humanity's overuse of antibiotics has created viruses so powerful they wipe out a quarter of the population. Medical technology has come so far as to warrant an ethics board to regulate how far science can go to save a life. At first the story seems to be a simple case of amnesia following a horrible accident, but as the story progresses it gets more and more complicated, as hidden truths about who Jenna Fox really is are revealed. This is a very creative and well-written novel that I highly recommend.
