Suspense: "After I spent over a year in a coma, how could they have predicted exactly when I would wake up and then move to California precisely at that time? Was it only coincidence? or did they decide when I would wake up? Why would they keep me in a coma so long? Why would they steal a year and a half of my life?"(Pearson 32).
The protagonist in The Adoration of Jenna Fox is Jenna Fox. Jenna is impulsive and curious after waking up from a year-long coma when she should have died. Jenna goes threw the struggle of losing her memory and then her world is turned upside-down when she finds out she is made of Bio gel.
Foreshadowing: "Isn't that what all of life is anyway? Shards. Bits. Moments. Am I less because I have fewer, or do the few I have mean more? Am I just as full as anyone else? Enough? Pieces"(Pearson 80).
The antagonist in The Adoration of Jenna Fox is society/Government. Jenna is illegal because her father recreates most of Jenna. Bio gel is highly regulated by the government so people can't abuse it. If anyone found out that Jenna is made up of Bio gel they would be in a lot of trouble and probably go to Jail.
One of the many themes in The Adoration of Jenna Fox is Mans relationship with nature and survival. one way this is shown is when Jenna is remade with bio gel, and Jenna wants to know where her soul went since she is artificial. This shows the theme because Jenna should have died and that's natural, but because of bio gel, she survived artificially.
Irony: "Two hundred and sixty years later"
After a year-long coma Jenna wakes up but at the same time, they move to California because of the bio gel. This shows suspense because the reader knows that all these things can't be a coincidence. The reader is unsure why all these events happened in the order that they did.
This shows foreshadowing from Jenna's reconstruction. Jenna's parents' desperation to keep her alive by genetically modifying her. This foreshadows the struggle Jenna goes through to find herself, by watching old home videos. As she tries to connect with her humanity and trying to gain personal freedom
This shows irony because Jenna's parents didn't expect that the bio gel would last this long. They told Jenna that she had to keep it a secret and they when she died it would be natural. But, she was still alive two hundred years later. This is irony because living that long was the opposite of what they thought and should have happened.
