It is a wonderful thing to grow up in a family who loves you. But Jenna Fox wonders if her parents love her too much. They have gone to extreme measures to help her survive a horrific accident. Have they, and medical science, gone too far this time? And will Jenna ever really have a life of her own?
This is a powerful book that addresses so many topics: personal identity, parent-teen relationships, scientific advances, biological and genetic engineering, governmental regulations, and the question of life itself. I could not put this book down. A must for your library!
