Forbidden was not an easy story to read. In fact, reading it was a real struggle at times. It made my heart ache and my eyes hurt with unshed tears. Until the very end, when the tears eventually did flow freely. But in the end, it was all worth it, because Forbidden was such a thoughtprovoking, powerful and emotional story and despite all the anguish and heartbreak in it, it's eas.
But in the end, it was all worth it, because Forbidden was such a thoughtprovoking, powerful and emotional story and despite all the anguish and heartbreak in it, it's easily one of the best books I've ever read.
Their life isn't an easy one. With a father that has left them several years ago, a mother who drinks more than is good for her and who doesn't have a sense of responsibility for her children whatsoever and 3 younger siblings to take care of, they're going through a rough patch to say the least.
Bills need to be pain, dinner has to be made and the younger children need to be taken care of and all of these tasks fall upon the shoulders of the two older children of the household, Maya and Lochan. But amidst all of the chaos in their lives, there is one constant piece of comfort; the love Maya and Lochie have for each other and the strength that love brings them in order to move forward.
MAYA "I might appear confident and chatty, but I spend most of my time laughing at jokes I don't find funny, saying things I don't really mean - because at the end of the day that's what we're all trying to do: fit in, one way or another, desperately trying to pretend we're all the same.

Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast.
And the stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so completely—has also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love.
They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.

They have such a sad life and you really understand them and just want them to be happy even though that happiness is wrong. It's an amazing book and it does play with your feeling. Okay, so now I'm just going to get real [sensitive topic ahead]: I was sexually assaulted by my older brother for years when I was just a kid; would this still be readable for me?
I've heard such good things about this book, and I've got it recommended a lot of times, but at the same time I'm scared it will make me vomit and feel really bad.

This book is two siblings who fall in love and I feel like that situation might be entirely different than what you went through.
I will say, there is a sex scene at the end of the book, however, it's more of a loving sex scene. I didn't see any abusive topics in their relationship but if you feel like it might be something you can't handle then I would say just don't force it : less.

Raise your hand. No one? Oh - you haven't?! Are you sure?! Well, maybe it's for the best that you've never thought about your sibling like that. And maybe you wouldn't be interested in this book. Or maybe you still would Let's see, shall we? Now, I'm going to be very blunt about So Now, I'm going to be very blunt about the premise of this book. This book involves incest. It is a graphic depiction of a brother and sister who struggle with their personal lives as a result of Disappearing Parent Syndrome.
They begin to fall for and explore each other, physically and emotionally. There is actually a condition called "genetic sexual attraction" that can lead to relatives most commonly, those who meet as adults to be sexually attracted to each other and may possibly be a result of attraction to similar facial structure.
You might know a famous almost-couple who may or may not have suffered from this condition I say I shall fancy a bit of the rumpy pumpy with that lass. As long as there are relatives, there will be incest. Unless humans soon evolve into a Vulcan-like race that suppress their emotions and always base their decisions upon logic. Which sounds most illogical. Who should read this: Let's just say that "brotherly love" or "sisterly love" is not for everyone.
In fact, it's not for most people. Firstly: The large majority of siblings just aren't interested in each other. Second: If everyone participated in it - the human race would quickly devolve and be lost into genetic disorder.
That's just genetics. Sorry, I just seriously can't stop with the Star Wars thing. Forbidden is the very definition of sexual tension. Let's face it. Teens have raging hormones. I know I did. I would have in NO way been able to handle this book as a young teen.
