Blog Tour: Possession - Elana Johnson - Vi Character Interview

Today, Elana Johnson is here along with her Possession main character, Vi. Vi's here with a character interview courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for Possession. Thank you for being here Elana, and Vi! You can follow along with the tour here, or by clicking through the banner. Enjoy!

What was your impression of Jag the first time you saw him?

That he was bad. I mean, his skin was all stained. But he looked so relaxed, so I thought maybe he knew something about the hearing that I didn’t. Turns out, he knew a lot about a lot of things that I didn’t. Jerk.

If you could change or get rid of any rule, what would it be and why?

Oh, I’d totally annihilate the whole “you must plug-in to the transmissions for eight full hours each night” rule. Just think, without that, maybe people would start to think for themselves.

How has life been for you since you've been on your own with your mom?

Sucktacular. My mom is, well, she misses Ty. Sometimes I’m not even sure it’s me she sees…

What's your idea of the perfect date?

Date? Well, I’ve never really been on a date. Zenn and I used to hang out before we were matched, and he’s the only one I’ve ever spent time with alone. My favorite thing we used to do is walk around the lake and watch the sun go down. That felt perfect.

If you could say anything to Thane without repercussions, what would you say?

I think I left it all on the table when it comes to Thane. Yeah, he’s not my favorite person, and I did tell him off in the book. The problem is, there is no scenario that exists where there aren’t repercussions. So I don’t know what else I’d say to him. “You’re a freaking jerk,” just doesn’t seem to cover it, you know?

I think you're quite resilient, but how would you describe yourself?

I think resilient fits pretty well. I think sometimes I’m very naive. I hate feeling like that, but no one will tell me anything! *shoots a glare at Jag* *and Zenn*

Is there anything you would like people to know about you before they start reading Possession?

Nope. I’m pretty much an open book. Or I will be, as soon as they read POSSESSION.

Thank you again for being here today, Elana and Vi! 

Elana can be found on her website, her blog, and on twitter.

Elana is also giving away 10 signed copies of POSSESSION. The giveaway is linked here.


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.

Great interview. I love Vi as a character. She's definitely a little naive at times and definitely says what she thinks.
