Day Eight - All About Possession + Giveaway

Hey Guys, yesterday I featured debutante #4, Elana Johnson who is back today to talk to you lucky ducks about her debut and maybe you know...have a giveaway?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Book Profile

Debut - Possession ( Goodreads )
Author - Elana Johnson ( Profile )
Release Date - 7th June 2011
Genre - Dystopian
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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mini - Character Profiles

In 140 characters or less, I’ll have each of my MC’s tell you what Possession is about.


Violet Schoenfeld: Yeah, so I live in this brainwashing society and it sucks. I never make my own choices, but it's gotten easier since I stopped plugging in.

Jag Barque: I rot in prison for weeks, waiting. I didn't know why--until this girl Vi shows up. And I just know she can rock this lame world I live in.

Zenn Bower: Playing by the rules isn't fun, but sometimes by doing what other people want, you get something you want in return. That's my motto anyway.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
