Who is Jenna Fox?

Throughout this book I was asking myself this question along with Jenna Fox, a seventeen-year-old girl who had woken from a coma after a terrible accident.

Jenna doesn't know who she was-- or who is is, for that matter. She can't remember anything of her past, only memories from when she was just a mere baby (spanning from her baptisim to the time she almost drowned when she was two). The new Jenna can't eat real food. The new Jenna can't leave the house. The new Jenna can't recieve answers to her many questions.

When Jenna starts to explore the life of who she is now, she discovers a shocking truth about herself in the past and in the present...

This is an extremely powerful, emotional book. Jenna is telling the story to you as it happens, so you really feel what Jenna is going through. The science portion of the story is horrifying. The author explores the possibilites of future medicine and nature to an extent. All the disaster in the future might be the effects of greed, obsessiveness and the desire to know more. Even today, science and technology have crossed bondaries in which we can never return to. Some may think that all our "advancements" in life are for the better, but it is really for the worst. For example, the author descibes of a pandemic of bacteria taking place in the future because humans are overvaccinated for pathogens. It may seem unlikely now, but it can happen. This book really questions if science is creating more harm than anything else.

Everyone should read this book, although it might not appeal to some. Some parts of the story were slow, but it will truly open you to humanity now and humanity to come.
