    "Great YA Fiction"

    This was a great book for my daughter and me to enjoy and discuss together. It is a typical "coming of age" story but it gets into so many ethical questions: from medical technology to a parent's expectations of her child.

    Jenna Lamia is a fabulous narrator; we love her storytelling ability.

    "Great story, great narration."

    I loved the flow of the story, the way it was written from the perspective of Jenna Fox. Jenna Lima was spot on with the narration. I got this book in one of audible's first in a series sales, not knowing anything about it previously. I am so glad I got it. I truly enjoyed the story. Although I enjoyed the other books this is by far the best in the series.

    "Thought provoking but..."

    I usually look forward to listening to a book during my commute, but, for whatever reason, I had to force myself to follow this one to the end. The narrator was good, the story made me think about what it means to be "human," but...I don't know...just couldn't get excited about it.

    Audiobooks have literally changed my life. I now actually ENJOY doing mindless chores because they give me plenty of listening time!

    "Who Is Jenna?"

    Like most seventeen-year-olds, Jenna Fox is still trying to figure out who she is. Only she probably has more existential questions to deal with than most teenagers, because Jenna has just woken up from a year spent in a coma following a horrific car accident that nearly killed her, and she can't remember anything at all about her past or who she was. She has to rely on a bunch of videotapes recorded over the years by her parents to see for herself what she was like growing up, and she's not sure she can continue being the perfect and adored child she seemed to have been for the first 16 years of her life. Her grandmother Lilly seems to mistrust, even dislike her, though Jenna has no idea what she's done to deserve this cold reserve. Day by day, she begins to recover memories from her past, including some memories which she shouldn't have, such as when she was baptized when only a few months old. She's curious to know why they are now living in California when her and her parents had spent all their lives previous to a few weeks ago living in Boston, where her father is still working. Little by little, she recovers her memory, but still things don't seem to add up, and she isn't quite sure there is a connection between the Jenna before the accident, and the one who has woken up a year later. There's very little else I can say about this book without revealing a major spoiler.

    A very well written story with an intriguing premise and and intelligent development which is suitable for young and old adults alike. It's a short novel to begin with, but I created lots of listening time and finished it in just two days because I was dying to know how things unfolded. Jenna Lamia, who narrates the audio version, is a great narrator and is convincing as a teenager with her girlish voice and the maturity she brings to the reading of a complex character. This is book is part 1 of a trilogy, but it's great as a stand-alone too. Definitely recommended.
