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.
Oh boy, yet another amazing book that has left with a hugely annoying cliffhanger waiting for me till the next year *sigh*
Violet the main character in the story and a badass if I dare say, and has an amazing and scary life, her sister got taken away and killed 3 years ago, her dad disappeared 7 years ago and no one knows where he is.
This Dystopian novel is also technology bases as was the last novel I read, both are in a world where technology is mostly everything and the leader will do nothing to stop the control he has on everybody, people are forced to wear certain things, eat certain things, there not allowed to interact with the opposite sex and there is absolutely not touching whatsoever past the age of 8. Not even parents can touch them to comfort them or give them hugs.
Violet has been in trouble with the law 8 times, but the last time she abided the law was the last straw. She was sentenced and thrown in a cell with a boy who she didn’t even know, meanwhile she’s constantly thinking about Zenn the boy she loves and her match.
While Jag and Violet are in the cell violet has to think of an escape, they can’t stay in here, Somehow Violet and Jag escape and then begins their journey. As their journey continues and they are faced with hundreds of near death situations, Violet finds the power she never knew she had; she can control people with her mind. Just like Jag can control people just by saying something.
I know what you’re thinking, not another love triangle. But in “possession” it fits. I never thought that Zenn was right for her anyway.
While reading this book I have been thinking of some similarities between the books “Matched” and “Delirium” but all books are all creatively different. Dystopian is my new favorite YA genre and I love it.
By the way, team Jag all the way ;)
