Publisher Description

A new, original science fiction story by Mary E. Pearson which features characters from and takes place in the near-future world of The Jenna Fox Chronicles.

In "The Rotten Beast," a sixteen-year-old girl named Allys, living in a near future version of the U.S., is vehemently opposed to the way scientists are meddling with human and artificial life. In fact, she blames such scientific overreaching for the illness which is killing her. When she awakens one day to find that her parents have gone against her wishes and had an illegal operation performed to save her life and restore her body, she is furious and must come to terms with this new chance at life, which she didn't ask for and didn't think she wanted.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

“I read https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1902241.The_Adoration_of_Jenna_Fox__Jenna_Fox_Chronicles___1_ like 3 years ago and remember liking it. It was a really interesting futuristic story. It kept me guessing and was actually nothing like what I was expecting it to be. I’ve read a lot of sci fi and can’t remember reading another series like it. But it’s been so long that I forgot a lot despite reading a summary before reading this short story, and kinda forgot the connection I had with the characters. So I think I would have really enjoyed this a lot more of I had read it all around the same time. It actually shed some light on a piece of the story that was missing in the first book. It was well-written and kinda creepy. This definitely adds to the story and I’m glad I read it. It made me remember how much I liked the series years ago.”
