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


Intense. Captivating. Imaginative.

Possession has really given me a lot to think about. Compared to all the other blossoming dystopian novels coming out, it has something so special and different from them. The entire story was an adventure from page one until the every end. Ms. Johnson created a world that was not only creative, but so realistically built that I felt that it could possibly be what the future has in store.

I loved the main characters, Vi and Jag. Their personalities were definitely one of the shining qualities that made reading their dialogue so enjoyable. Jag was so different from other male characters in YA I’ve seen that I was at first shocked by it. Secretive and funny yet sensitive and fearful. And also had very awesome hair, haha. I think I have a major crush development!

Vi was a great character to see through. She definitely had a month on her and I loved that! She was a strong and independent heroine that played by her own rules. Through the whole book there are twist and turns. It seemed as of secrets and lies were the structure to everyone’s life. Possession is a book about a so called good girl gone bad in all the right ways. It’s a world that will leaving you wanting more. I know I do!
