Review for Possession by Elana Jhonson

Possession by Elana Johnson
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.
Imagine the world being split, the people being categorized – Good and Bad. The “Thinkers” controlling everything and everyone, telling them what to do, what to feel, what is right and what is wrong. The good people listen and the baddies don’t. Vi doesn't think she is Bad bad but she doesn't want to listen and do what the Thinkers say either. She has powers that she herself never realized and she needs to decide what to do with it. She needs to make a decision. One that will change everything, not just for herself but for everyone else too.
First off the cover!!! *-* I’m in love with the cover! After reading it I can say its so totally apt for the book! Just gorgeous! Covers make me pick up a book and this one was the best cover! <3
At the start I was a bit confused as to why things were the way they were. It made me think. I love a book that makes me think!! Whenever I’d close the book I’d still be thinking about it. I just wish there was a bit more of an introduction of some sort as to why things were this way?
I loved the characters and I loved the whole “Jag speak” and “Vi talk” part, it was so sweet and tender. I loved the way the author builds the whole image of the dystopian world. It was like I could see it in my head. And its quite possible that we might live in a world like that someday... On the other hand I hope not... At least not in every aspect...
Overall a good read – Different, emotional, exciting, complex and sweet. Just  felt like something was missing for me.
