Teens have raging hormones. With all your heart, you feel their desperation as they fight to hide something the whole world will judge them for. Like the many ‘coming out’ novels, Suzuma wants you to recognise a different type of love from the norm.

His other siblings were just tools to move the plot along, Tiffin is only memorable because of his unfortunate name. She slowly drifted to alcoholism and fantasy of getting a new life with this other guy Dave. Jesus, Maya, I’d sell her to the gypsies! Angst to the 10th degree Superb writing that kept me on the edge. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take c She forbiddem pretty and talented – tabitah sixteen and never been kissed.

Retrieved from ” http: It is a sad story about the danger of dysfunctional families and should never be regarded as another angsty tale of forbidden love, even though the title suggests otherwise.

But I get the feeling that a lot of people wouldn’t necessarily realize just how graphic this book turns out to be without researching beforehand. This is simply, sadly, reality for many.


How long will I? It’s all too easy for an author to resort to the tasteless exploitation of sticky sentiment or breathy fumblings that heighten the excitement of a taboo relationship.

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

When I was reading this book. When I look back at my life, all sixteen years and a half of it, Lochan was always there. It gives you a new view on things you would never have thought of.

We can always just try. Sometimes discouraging teens from doing something can lead to more curiosity on their part.

But this book is far from that. It’s so hard to describe. Love can touch us one time And last for a lifetime And never let go till we’re gone Love was when I loved you One true time I forbifden to In my life we’ll always go on It does not stop there, it questions the readers, that, where do you draw the line, the line between the person you love?

A Review of “Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma”

In fact, it’s not for most people. Without Maya, I lose all three; apart we will slowly die. Because if you do,you will find a story that will rock you to your emotional saauma and stay with you long after the last page is turned Its just heartbreakingly beautiful.

After their father abandoned the family to start afresh, Lochan and Maya’s irresponsible, alcoholic mother continues her downward spiral.

And the only person he can really be himself with is his slightly younger sister Maya. I forbiddeh connected to this character and how it is so realistic.


Since I knew where this story was heading from the start, I wasn’t surprised at all when the siblings’ relationship started to take on a more romantic feel. I’m not an emotional person; I was, but life tends to slowly erase most of our weakness, and the child who once cried in 5th grade during a class reading of Where the Red Fern Grows has grown up to be an adult who doesn’t blink at seeing blood and guts onscreen and who laughs her bj through the majority of tearjerkers films.

Life Changing in every sense of the word. This one will take some time to digest. Hate leads to suffering. I am legitimately sobbing right now. The relationship between Maya and Lochan is complicated from the beginning. She was so sweet.

At this point, Lochan and Maya ceased to be characters and sounded more like mouthpieces, which bothered me immensely. They have already broken too many rules. I have never ever felt anything like this in my life. Anger leads to hate I am truly exhausted emotionally and psychologically after reading this book and all I can think of foridden torturing myself by starting at page one all over again and reading through this masterpiece from the beginning to end. The poor lovable bright Lochan.

I felt her always pushing Lochan to do what he doesn’t want to.
