I get why it has garnered so much curiosity and also why so many people are gasping and weeping at the end.

When will his face become a blur? Lochie’s lips are rough yet smooth, hard yet gentle. I wept I hate this book!! But I was not prepared for this!!

Alone and left to their own devices, they’re functioning in the role of parents.

This book sazima a perfect example that the YA genre is more than what people give it credit for. This situation was simply due to the fornidden complications in which they live. I loved the simplicity of the final chapter – it could have been dragged out but it wasn’t and that made it all the more effective. Hardships brought them closer together not just in ways that brothers and sisters were supposed to be.

So it was only a matter of time that this line dissipated and they fell in love with each other. And the only person he can really be himself with is his slightly younger sister Maya.


Ag Add me on Facebook: Lochan and Maya have never really been brother and sister. Slowly but surely, however, the feelings she has for him turn into so much more than just the love between siblings.

I had read nothing but fantastic reviews for it. He does everything to refute authority.

A Review of “Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma”

Together, Maya and Lochan always pull each other through. No one, Maya, no one can ever take that away from us.

There’s just one problem-they’re brother and sister, hence the title of the book: I am truly exhausted emotionally and psychologically after reading this book and all I can think of is torturing myself by starting at page one all over again forvidden reading through this masterpiece from the beginning to end.

It helps when you get to the crying part: I am not saying that teenagers should not read, not at all, they absolutely should, I am saying that adults should definitely read Forbiddenthat it would be a real loss to discard this book because is directed for a younger public.

Of course I understand why the writer chose not to write this end, I respect her decision; I just personally believe it was a mistake not to do so. But the author does not do it lightly.
