Without our memories what are we?

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E Pearson

When Jenna wakes from a coma, she can’t remember anything. As she regains the use of her body, a body that feels strange and ‘different’, some of her memories slowly return to her. However, when she “remembers” events she should have no memory of – such as things that happened whilst she was still in the womb – she begins to wonder if the voices she hears may have a sinister purpose.

Why will no one talk about the accident which resulted in her being in a coma? Why does her grandmother seem to dislike her so much when she distinctly remembers them enjoying each other’s company? Who is the Jenna in the home videos and why does she feel so disconnected from her?

This is a sci-fi- novel that questions the morality of genetic science and gets you thinking about what it is that makes us who we are.
