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?

I've had my eye on this book for a while, but because I was planning to write and then wrote a YA futuristic myself, I didn't want to pick it up until I was done. And this was the perfect reward! I picked it up on Wednesday night and read the first 70 pages in one sitting. If I hadn't been tired, I'm pretty sure I would've read the whole thing.

This was one amazing book! I got swept away in Jenna's thoughts, and the mystery she faced. I wanted to find out what really happened to her as much as she did. Every step of the way, I felt as if I was shadowing her heart-wrenching discoveries. I felt every fear, every suspicion, every bit of happiness, sadness, regret, confusion, and anger. It was one of those amazing books that get under your skin and touch your heart. And I absolutely LOVED the ending.

I read a lot of awesome books, but every now and then there's a story that really touches my heart and soul. A story that I'll never forget and will continue to think about even months and years after reading it. This is definitely one of those. I loved this hauntingly beautiful tale of a girl trying to remember...
