Jenna Fox is a young teenager who has just woken up from a coma that lasted a whole year and a half. After waking, however, she can’t seem to remember anything. Not her name, her parents, her home, emotions, even how to do basic things like walk. She watches videos to remember her life, and it seems to work well. As she remembers though it seems that everything is not quite what it seems.
I loved this book! Jenna herself was a great character, her struggles really drew me in. The rest of the story was great as well, the author did a really good job at presenting tough medical ethical questions in a young adult book and making the issues easy to comprehend. Definitely a favorite in the YA category for me.
