"Possession held me completely captivated from beginning to end. And what an end! I fell in love with the characters and had countless moments of 'Wow.'" --James Dashner, bestselling author of The Maze Runner trilogy
"Who Should Read This: Anyone who wants a challenge: This plot is so twisty, I had to read the last chapter twice before I could believe what happened. There's also a very nice balance between badass action and romantic tension for readers who like a good mix of the two." --MTV.com
"Emotion pumps through every scene of this thriller. Given all the urgency and action, the novel's ending may surprise readers as the heroic adventure turns into a tragic love story." -School Library Journal
"If George Orwell's novel 1984 were to have a little stepsister, Johnson's POSSESSION would be her.... It would also be perfect for those who relish a hearty romance mixed in with science fiction....As readers follow the relationship triangle, they will gasp with anticipation wondering which boy she will ultimately choose." --VOYA
"An intriguing dystopia...A good choice for fans of Pam Bachorz and Ally Condie." --Booklist
"This debut dystopian succeeds at suspense and tension.... Revelations come hard and fast." --Kirkus
