Possession

Possession (Possession, #1)
Goodreads Synopsis:   Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even thinkabout 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.

My Thoughts:

-     The Badlands is a place in World of Warcraft.  

-     Tyson is a terrible name for a sister.

-    I wish the author had spent more time describing the society at the beginning.  The book was a little confusing.  I'm still unsure how the government works.  

-    The tech stuff seemed like it had no limits.  There was a piece of tech for everything.  It was like magic, which it shouldn't be.

-    Feels like the 2nd book in a series, not the first.  There is a lot of back story that comes into play, but the reader doesn't know the back story.

-    I didn't really connect with any of the characters.  Vi was really dramatic, and the  love interests were...ugh...just not appealing to me.  Jag was too much of an Edward character, and that bugged me.

-    There are some Graceling things and Divergent things in this book.  

-    Vi's "powers" were confusing for me.  Can she control tech or people?  It seemed like she could control both with her mind, and stuff like that needs limitations or it isn't believable.
