Forbidden // Book Talk

17-year-old Lochan and 16-year-old Maya have done what so many other teenagers have. Fallen in love. They have fallen in love with each other, only there one big problem, a huge problem in fact; they are brother and sister. 
Having to take care of their three younger siblings because of a father who left and an alcoholic mother they had to grow up fast. And they had to stick together in their stressed lives. Taking care of school, their younger siblings and their own life. 
They know their relationship, what they feel, is wrong and are determined to stop. Yet they cannot stop feeling what they feel. Feeling what to them feels right. And one thing is for sure; there will be no happy ending. 

Oh my, this book.

I picked up this book because it was completely different from anything I have ever read. It is not really a topic you come across often in books. Anywhere really. I was curious to see how the story would progress, how they would fall in love and how it would end. Because how can such a love story end? Not happily, I would assume. 

It was such a weird feeling reading this because they did not have it easy and I wanted them to be okay, to be safe and not have to take on such a huge responsibility. But at the same time it felt so incredibly wrong. It was very strange being in their thoughts and feelings. It was so unrelatable. Yet so raw. These characters and their lives felt so real but with a love completely unreal. 

With that being said I would actually recommend it. It is a book you just have to keep reading until you hit the very last word. Very likable characters and I enjoyed the writing style. And with an ending that made me cry. And as said, unlike anything, at least, I have read before. 

But I have to say at some point, well more than once, it was hard to read. Very hard to read. If you want to know more about the book on Goodreads just click right here
