  • Join us tomorrow, October 18, at the Caribou Coffee on Northwest Highway to discuss The Adoration of Jenna Fox.   We can accommodate up to 20 teens.  First round of drinks are on us!  This book is part of Book Crossing, the Library’s cross-cultural book program with Mount Prospect’s Sister City, Sèvres, France.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox takes place in the near future when 17-year-old Jenna Fox wakes up to find that she has been in a coma for over a year. In this novel, that centers on the ethics of biomedical engineering, Jenna questions why she cannot regain her memories but has no problem reciting things an average high schooler learns in class and why her family is acting so strangely towards her.
