The Adoration of Jenna Fox

by Mary E. Pearson

Grade: Good
Story: Jenna wakes up after having been in a terrible accident, with all her memory gone.

Quite a lot to think about in this one. I'll have to get Daddy to read it, and then discuss it with him. Especially  questions such as these:

--What about souls? She definitely seemed to have one.
--i.e. Was it a mercy-killing to kill her friends?
--And what about her backup? Was that murder too? Does that even work?

It was very nice to a Catholic character who was sympathetic. Not perfect, but not perfect in a very real way, instead of the religious-bigot not-perfect people whom you often get. And in fact, she was perhaps my favourite character.
