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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

...it is through his [Locke's] viewpoint that we experience the confusing futuristic world, the thrilling suspense of the chase, the charged emotional reunion of the friends, and the admirably complex playing out of the issues of trust, ethics, and betrayal. Horn Book Magazine
…the story is gripping, urgent, and highly appealing… School Library Journal
A dazzling blend of science fiction, mystery, and teen friendship drama… Publishers Weekly, starred review
...the book's timely and haunting questions will leave thoughtful readers with much to ponder. Kirkus Reviews
In this futuristic follow-up, Pearson pries open the most haunting element of Jenna Fox's world: disembodied minds trapped in computers. Questions of human identity and nightmarish medical technology drive this riveting, thought-provoking sequel. Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games
A gripping story that begs the question: Do you really know what lies at the genesis of your friend's biology, psyche or even their heart? Shelf Awareness
The ethical debates around whether science should be limited by conscience and not just ability are well integrated into a story that is equally strong as an exploration of home, identity, and the meaning of survival. BCCB
Fans of Mary Pearson's The Adoration of Jenna Fox will relish this futuristic sequel…The story is told from Locke's perspective, and Matthew Brown's youthful voice captures Locke's bewilderment and frustration…Libraries circulating the first title will definitely want to add this to their collections. School Library Journal
Narrator Matt Brown is outstanding as humans, robots, and other futuristic life forms in this stunning sequel to The Adoration of Jenna Fox...This is science fiction even for those who aren't sci-fi fans. Both book and narrator cannot be overpraised. AudioFile Magazine, AudioFile Earphone Award Winner
Narrator Matthew Brown captures Locke perfectly, portraying his early, childlike mentality, his bewilderment over a familiar and unfamiliar world, and his ultimate disillusionment, pain and personal loss. Ruby's Reads
This is a mesmerizing story that will be greeted enthusiastically by Jenna Fox fans. VOYA
“Matthew Brown narrates with a smooth, mellow voice that is very appropriate for this YA sci-fi novel. His rendition of the distressed Locke is spot on, and he provides equally appropriate voices for the book's various characters: adults, kids, males, female, and even robots. Brown's reading also captures the thoughtful reflection of the author's prose, while still creating excitement and tension when the story hits suspenseful passages. Publishers Weekly
