The Adoration of Jessa Fox
Jessa Fox remembers little of her life before the accident. She doesn’t even really remember much about her parents. Her parents, who love their only child so much they would do anything to protect Jessa, are trying to jog her memory by having her watch video recordings of her life. As snippets of memory return, Jessa has more questions than answers. However, her parents seem mysterious and evasive when she makes inquiries about certain aspects of her life. Other things are equally confusing, such as why her father lives in Boston while her mother and grandmother live with Jessa in California. Also, why does Jessa’s grandmother seem to dislike Jessa and try to avoid her? As Jessa begins to investigate, she uncovers information that threatens to destroy her and her family.
The Adoration of Jessa Fox is science fiction and mystery rolled into one book. It raises a lot of questions about family and medical ethics.
I love working in the middle school library because each day I get to work with wonderful students. In addition, I have access to lots of interesting books. It is always fun to help students connect to books they like, and to talk about what they are reading.
