The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
Release Date: September 1, 2009
Publisher: Square Fish
Series: Jenna Fox Chronicles
Goodreads | Amazon | The Book Depository

Identity.

Where does it lie? In a face? A voice? A bundled string of events we call a lifetime? Is it in our DNA, bone, flesh, ancestry? How do we define our identity, and is it a once and for all definition? Or is it always changing?

Who am I? Can anyone ever know for sure just what it takes to be who we are?

We all search for our place in this world and how we fit in, but for Jenna Fox that search reaches dark new dimensions when she wakes from a coma and can’t remember who she is. Worse, she doesn’t remember the people who claim to be her parents. There is something curious about them, about the house they all live in--in fact, curious describes her whole life, as she attempts to unlock the secrets of who she was, and who she has become.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox is about Jenna’s search for identity, a quest as old as history, but as startling as the future.

  1. Those look beautiful. I managed to get a ARC of Carrier of the Mark. It looks like that will be a very good title.

  2. I've been looking forward to the Rachel Vincent series for ages! I can't wait until August. :)

    Carrier of the Mark looks good (great cover too), I hadn't heard of it - and the last two have gotten terrific reviews.
