I remembered reading part of this book years ago, but couldn’t remember the ending. So when I had the chance to read it again I decided why not? And I’m definitely glad that I did.
Jenna Fox was in a horrible accident at age 16 that should have killed her. Yet, somehow, Jenna survived. The only problem is that now she has absolutely no idea who she is and doesn’t feel like a human being anymore. This books begin a series surrounding Jenna Fox’s journey to re-discover who she was before the accident and to figure out what happened to her that made her forget everything.
Jenna’s parents let her view home videos from each of her birthday’s up until she turned 16 in an attempt to remind Jenna of who she was before the accident. What Jenna didn’t expect to find out from these movies, is that when her parents made the decision to save her they also simultaneously changed the course of her life forever.
Jenna must now deal with the realization that she will never be the Jenna she once was and is technically “illegal.”
An excellent read based on a strange premise, but one that I really enjoyed.
