The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

What makes you really you? How much of your memory can you lose without becoming a totally different person? What if all you know about your younger years is by watching family videos?

This is a fascinating novel that questions many of the assumptions we have. Jenna Fox is severely injured in a car crash, and when she wakes up from her coma, she has no memory of who she used to be.

Besides losing her memory, her physical body also doesn't seem the same. Jenna's parents aren't much help, and throughout the book, Jenna struggles with finding out the truth about who she really is and what happened to her body and her memories.

This is a great book that still makes me think a year after I finished reading it.
