Plot without spoilers...Violet Schoenfeld has always lived in the Goodlands, but she has not always been entirely good. It's been worth breaking rules to be with handsome Zenn. Then, suddenly, she is arrested and imprisoned by the Thinkers--the dominant, mind-controlling rulers of her world. In prison, she meets handsome Badlander, Jag, and suddenly her feelings for Zenn, her beliefs about Goodies and Baddies, and even the mystery surrounding her lost father come into question. Is Jag really who he says he is? And is Vi the person she believes herself to be?
Of literary merit...Readers are dropped headlong with Vi into a world of shifting alliances and terrifying technologies. The world of "tech," from gadgets to simulations to monitoring systems, is dynamic and thoroughly realized.
Finally, just gotta say...Possession is both an action-packed dystopian thriller and a thought-provoking exploration of good versus bad, right versus wrong and, most importantly, the grey area where there is no perfect choice to be made.
