JUNE's Featured Debut Novel: POSSESSION

The debut novel I've picked to feature for the month of JUNE is...
POSSESSION by Elana Johnson
Release Date: 06/07/2011
Number of Pages: 416
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Best Described As: Dystopian

Why I've picked this novel to feature:  Because Elana Johnson wrote it.  I've been following her blog ever since I started blogging myself.  She's a great inspiration of all the wannabe writers out there and her advice has been invaluable to me personally!  And secondly, because I'm obsessed with love triangles and this one doesn't just promise, it delivers.
Here's what it's all about: 
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.

Here's my challenge to you:
As part of The Story Siren's Debut Author Challenge, this month I will be reading POSSESSION.  I encourage you to read along with me.  :)

You can check out my review here and see what I thought.  And if you review POSSESSION on your own blog this month be sure leave your link in the comments section of this post.  I always look forward to reading other people's thoughts.

This looks really good. I've been wanting a good YA lately and this might do the trick.
