The Forbidden Book Club
She is pretty and talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But... they are brother and sister.
Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. 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 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.
Ever since Forbidden came out this past June, I have been wanting to read it. I admit though that I have been a little scared. The subject matter (brother/sister in love) is very taboo and I don't know how I will feel about it. When I heard about this book club, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity for me to get it read!
The book club is starting the book next Wednesday (12/7/11) so you should have plenty of time to get your hands on a copy!
If you would like to join in on this little book club make a post on your blog and add it to the linky over on the main blog post at Reading Teen! You can also find out more info about the book club in that post!
