POSSESSION by Elana Johnson + Giveaway

We're so excited to help launch Elana Johnson's thrilling dystopian novel, Possession, for her Teen Book Scene blog tour! Possession will be released by Simon Pulse on June 7th, 2011. To celebrate Possession's release, we're giving away an Advanced Reader Copy! About the book:

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.




And now, a vlog from Elana:



Enter to win an ARC of Elana Johnson's Possession by commenting on this post with your name and email address. US/Canada only, please. We'll pick a winner one week from today.

Good luck!
