Possession by Elana Johnson

If you have become obsessed with the dystopian genre (i.e. Hunger Games, Matched, The Giver, etc.) as I have, there is a new book by a debut author that you must read. Elana Johnson just released her book Possession and it is fabulous. The main characters are compelling and the story is fast paced. I personally fell in love with the main character, Vi, and can't seem to stop thinking about the book. I am now trying to figure out how to convince my husband to name a future child Jag...is that weird? Now, you are probably wondering what the book is about, below is a synopsis.

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 brainwashed 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.

I loved the book and I highly recommend it. Go order a copy!

  1. Hmm Jag is pretty close to Jack. I think you could make it work.
