Review: Possession by Elana Johnson

Possession (Possession, #1)
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.

I received this book to give an honest review.
The only reason I gave this book a 4 star rating is because for me I felt as though I could not at times distinguish who was talking or who would be replying. If Jag said something then it would follow though with a response but I had to go back and say oh okay he was talking with Vi or talking to this person. Also Vi seemed to make stupid choices, she never seemed to think things through. I would have liked for her to be a bit more smarter in her choices.
Other than that the story line was great, I found myself sucked into the story and the action just waiting to find out what was going to happen next. When I found out who Gavin really was I was in shock just like Vi. Not only that but with the Director also, I was like WHOA! Are you serious nice little surprise thrown in their for the readers.
In Possession you see the world though Jag and Vi's eyes and see what they have to endure. If you have read Resist you now understand why Zenn is the way he is. I do want to read more in this little series as I want to know what is Vi going to do with Director. Will Jag and Vi be together? What will happen with Zenn? Heck what is going to happen overall!!!!
There is a bit of love going on between Jag and Vi but it is like a growing love I guess. Jag had me a bit confused on why he would leave and what not but at the end I understood why he was acting that way and doing those things. This is a great read for YA and over.
