Description:

Who is Jenna Fox? Seventeen-year-old Jenna has been told that is her name. She has just awoken from a coma, they tell her, and she is still recovering from a terrible accident in which she was involved a year ago. But what happened before that? Jenna doesn't remember her life. Or does she? And are the memories really hers?

My Thoughts: 


Jenna Fox is a young girl who awakens after a terrible car accident left her in a coma.  She spends most of her days at home sheltered from the world.  What really happened to Jenna Fox?  Jenna finds out that what she isn't.  She's not fully human she is created by her father, in his lab after she died.  What her parents did to create Jenna is illegal in the United States.  They used 10% of her brain and skin graphs to create the new Jenna Fox.  

Her grandmother Lily doesn't know what to do about Jenna whether she is the real deal or does Jenna have memories implanted into her to make her life the old Jenna.  Jenna also discovers hidden in a room three computers, one is Locke, one is Kara and one is Jenna.  They are backups of the kids in the horrible accident and her parents kept them going as a precaution about the car accident should charges be filed against Jenna.  But Jenna can't live that way, hearing their voices in her head, a constant reminder that they want to be free.

Finally Jenna begins a special school with few kids all considered freaks in their own way, where she meets Ethan a boy she falls in love with and Allys a girl she considers a best friend, until Allys learns about Jenna's secret and exposes it to her parents.  To what strengths will a parent go through to fix their child.  This was a very intriguing story about science and parenting and how far a parent will go.  A book I couldn't put down.
