Forbidden - Tabitha Suzuma This is a really powerful story that makes you think about how you view things still considered taboo. Suzuma writes such a love story that I went from seriously? to wishing that things could just work out for them. Lochan and Willa are very mature for their age, and are raising their younger siblings, this shared responsibility has led them to fall in love. It was easy for me to forget (because the characters do I suppose) that they are siblings for a while, until they start talking through the issue- showing disgust, acceptance, anger that their love is viewed as wrong. Spoilers below!!I could not give it 5 stars, because the ending seriously depressed me and I wish that I just never would have read the epilogue. I just wanted their HEA- and although Lochan showed the ultimate sacrifice for his brothers and sisters, I just wish that they could have made things work despite all of their difficulties. This is a must read though!
