This week's selection is:
The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson
Expected Publication: August 20, 2011 by Henry Holt Co.
Genre: Science Fiction
Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries.
Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead.
Everyone except Jenna Fox.
I absolutely loved and was fascinated with The Adoration of Jenna Fox. I was ecstatic to discover that there would be a sequel. The synopsis of this upcoming book sounds like it might even be better than the first one. I am not usually a huge fan of science fiction, but Pearson's writing is so contemporary and not over anyone's head that it almost doesn't read like science fiction. This is definitely one of my highly anticipated 2011 releases!
