Fox Forever Giveaway and Blog Tour!




Welcome to my stop on the Fox Forever blog tour! This is an incredible series, and I highly recommend that you read it. Mary was kind enough to share her thoughts on a quote in the book, and I loved reading her insightful comments.

Page 235:
She squeezes my hand and pulls me closer. “The world will change, Locke. Laws change . . . people change.”

Mary:  Oh boy, do we ever.  I think most of literature is about change.  We watch a character start out one way, and end up another.  The changes might be physical, emotional, situational, or maybe all three. In literature and in real life, we’re always recreating who we are.  

    This totally fascinates me. Besides individuals changing, we change as a group of people too.  What we believe today as a society, will not be what we believe fifty years from now.  Even twenty years from now.  

    This is what Jenna Fox is saying to Locke, in Fox Forever in the above passage.  At this point in the story she has now lived for 277 years, so she has seen a LOT of change.  She knows it happens.  It just takes time.  Some changes take longer than others.

    She mentioned “laws change” and it makes me think back to far less than 277 years ago and how different things were.  We weren’t even a country yet! Slavery was legal. The very idea repulses us now. Less than a hundred years ago, women in this country couldn’t vote!  Can you believe that?  And when I was a teen, people smoked in restaurants and airplanes—even in hospitals.  Heck, they could smoke anywhere they wanted to.

    But our ideas about what is acceptable and unacceptable change.  For Locke, in Fox Forever, he is counting on that change because he is illegal based on the medical technology that recreated him, but the change is not happening fast enough for him.
What change isn’t happening fast enough for you?  What laws do you think will change twenty years from now?  Fifty years from now?  What do you suppose will never change?  

    This story was my chance to imagine what changes the future might hold. I hope you’ll share your ideas.

    Thank you for having me at your blog!  I hope your readers enjoy Fox Forever and the rest of the books in The Jenna Fox Chronicles!

  4. wow! this is a very deep question. And a question that is hard to answer right on the spot. But I can just imagine what laws and changes are to come. I know there will be a law about people having guns. That issue is going on right now. Maybe sometime in the future we might have a law like China does about how many kids we can have. There are so many things that can change and I just hope that the changes will be for the good and not for the bad. Thank you for this amazing giveaway!!
