Join us the first Saturday of the month where we discuss our monthly read, recommend books to each other, eat snacks, and make a craft.  This month, we’re reading The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary Pearson, a modern sci-fi thriller.

Copies of March’s book, The Adoration of Jenna Fox, are available at the Children’s Room desk for check out.  Here’s a brief summary of the book:

“Seventeen-year-old Jenna Fox awakens after more than a year in a coma to find herself in a life—and a body—that she doesn’t quite recognize. Her parents tell her that she’s been in an accident, but much of her past identity and current situation remain a mystery to her: Why has her family abruptly moved from Boston to California, leaving all of her personal belongings behind? Why does her grandmother react to her with such antipathy? Why have her parents instructed her to make sure not to tell anyone about the circumstances of their move? And why can Jenna recite whole passages of Thoreau’s Walden, but remember next to nothing of her own past? As she watches family videos of her childhood, strange memories begin to surface, and she slowly realizes that a terrible secret is being kept from her.”~School Library Journal.
