Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.
But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.
This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play. - Goodreads
Possession is a new novel in the dystopian genre by debut author Elana Johnson. I really love this genre, and was thrilled when this book was released for review.
The main character, Vi, is awesome. She’s strong and very likable. She doesn’t want to be like the others, and she thinks for herself. She’s not easily swayed at all, until she meets the Jag. Jag is another character I like. Their relationship was a bit fast paced, but believable considering what they went through. I like all the secondary characters as well. Even the bad guys were interesting.
Although the beginning was a bit slow, the second half of the book was very fast paced, and I flew through it. I read this book in a day. There are a couple of confusing parts in the book, I found myself getting lost more than once. It was hard to keep up with who did what, went where, with who and why, etc. The plot was really interesting though, I like where the author went with the story.
Overall, this was a good read for me. I’ll definitely be checking out the next book in the series, so I can see what happens next.
Thank you to Simon and Schuster’s Galley Grab for allowing us to read and review this book.
