Waiting on Wednesday #6

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

Sixteen-year-old Maya and seventeen-year-old Lochan have never had the chance to be 'normal' teenagers. Having pulled together for years to take care of their younger siblings while their wayward, drunken mother leaves them to fend alone, they have become much more than brother and sister. And now, they have fallen in love. But this is a love that can never be allowed, a love that will have devastating consequences ...How can something so wrong feel so right?

Although the concept of this is a little bit horrifying, the positive reviews lead me to hope that it'll be powerful enough to suspend my judgement for a few hundred pages, in the way that 'How I Live Now' did. I think that the absolute best books are the ones that can completely change your opinion of something socially unacceptable for the duration of the book, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this one works out.

  1. I want this one too! It sounds like the kind of book you come out of believing something completely different than when you started. I wonder how it'll finish too
