Review'd: Possession by Elana Johnson

Book Review:
Title: Possession 
Author: Elana Johnson
Published June 7th, 2011 by Simon and Schuster

Goodreads Summary:
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.

DeLibrarie Review:
I really, really enjoyed this book. It was really fast paced and full of action that kept me from putting the book down. The plot of the story was really engaging and while the terminology "Goodgrounds" "Badlands" seemed a little paint-by-numbers, I really liked the world that Elana Johnson created. I was always pressured to keep reading to find out what the next twist would be. The only thing that kept this book from being a "5-star" for me was Violet (the main character). She was either pissed or crying throughout the entire book. It made any building relationships a little hard to believe because she was mad at every character constantly. It just got a little old and there were times when I just wanted to smack her. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and plan on rushing to the bookstore tomorrow to pick up the second one.
