The Lovereading4Kids comment

Carefully but without pulling any punches, Forbidden explores the power and pain of the feelings that pull Lochan and Maya together. Coping with their chaotic life which burdens them with responsibility far too young, the two siblings become increasingly inter-dependent. But it is more than that. As their love develops they cross the forbidden divide. They know what they are doing is wrong but it is irresistible.

Reviews

A complex novel that succeeds in exploring the controversial subject of sibling incest without sensation . . . A chilling, powerfully written tale with lasting effects for both teenage and adult readers -- Jake Hope * The Bookseller * It is sensitively written (with one quite graphic sex scene), and alternating chapters from the protagonists

* Inis * The reader is immediately involved -- Lesley Martin * School Library Association * A harrowingly tragic story . . . Suzuma's writing is compelling and its quality beyond question but there will be many (and not just those in the young adult category) who will be genuinely shocked by what they are reading here -- Robert Dunbar * The Irish Times * The novel's surprises continue to the very end -- Hazel Rochman * Booklist USA *

About the Author

Tabitha Suzuma
Tabitha Suzuma was born in London in 1975 to an English mother and a Japanese father, the eldest of five children. She went to the French Lycée in South Kensington and was a terrible pupil! but spent a lot of my time writing with her left-hand (she's right handed) in an attempt to while away the hours. Being half Japanese, she was sent to Japanese Saturday school. In the term report, the teacher commented that she would make more progress if she didn't always insist on sitting with her feet up on the desk. This still remains her favourite writing position, which is why she now has a reclining chair and a cordless keyboard.
