This fascinating novel represents a stunning new direction for acclaimed author Mary Pearson. Set in a near future America, it takes readers on an unforgettable journey through questions of bio-medical ethics and the nature of humanity. Mary Pearson’s vividly drawn characters and masterful writing soar to a new level of sophistication.
This novel asks the question, what really make someone human and how far do you let science interfere to save a life? The story is told all from Jenna Fox’s point of view. I simply found this book very captivating right from the very beginning. It is a little slow to start but it has to be, in order to set the foundation for the story.
I do have very strong opinions about this book and science and the things that take place in the novel. I don’t want to get into all of my thoughts because it would give too much of the story away. I will say that I believe every day on earth is a blessing and should be cherished no matter how you are facing it unless of course you have to face it in a vegetative state. This book will spark may awesome discussions. I think it would be great if assigned by teachers or read for book clubs across the world. This book gets your mind thinking and asking questions and isn’t that what a great book should do? I am so looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
