Lochan and Maya are best friends who have known each other their entire lives and have helped each other and fiercely loved one another through the many brutally painful experiences of growing up.

Stacia the club. I didn’t feel this book is mainly about incest, but is about their family dysfunction and how this affected their life. Their attempts to keep the family alive are futille but they manage to find a way and stop falling apart. Meet Me At The Boathouse by Suzanne Bugler is about an altogether fodbidden but equally dangerous adolescent love affair. At this point, Lochan and Maya ceased to be characters and sounded more like mouthpieces, which bothered me immensely.

I don’t know how to rate this book so therefore I’m not going to. And they did not want them. Can you answer it? View all 62 comments.

The sexual, physical and emotional abuse of children was on my radar on a daily basis. Subscribe to Read More to find out about similar books.


Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

Right to the end, they sacrificed for their younger siblings. I already wanted to do all kinds of naughty things without having an influence like this in my life, and I know that if I had read it before I had matured hormonally – I would have rushed out and tried to seduce the first “off limits” guy I could find.

Teens need to decide whether they are really interested and prepared for this book; they may even need help making their decision. Lochan is the eldest of 5 siblings, his younger siblings are Maya, Kit, Tiffin and Willa consecutively.

But “Forbidden” tells the tale of two teenagers, Lochan 17 – later 18 and Maya 16who both go to school with other people their own age, including plenty from the opposite sex but they have been forced to live quite unlike their other schoolmates when at home.

The children in this story have such a sad but unfortunately real situation. With an absent father and a mother who wilfully neglects them in favour of a search for bygone youth, a man, and freedom to hit the bottle, the two teenagers have acted as partners and parents to their three younger siblings for five years – long before they even hit puberty. Which sounds most illogical.

It was the fact that everyone who reads it seems to have a complete breakdown. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma made me do both. I can say that it is very well written.

She continued her education through distance learning and went on to study French Literature at King’s College London. After graduating, Tabitha trained as a primary school teacher and whilst teaching full-time, wrote her first novel. I guess I jinxed it. But in these sections the dialogue felt out of place and laboured, in a bald-faced effort to make the reader question, and ultimately sympathise with their forbiddeen.

A Review of “Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma” – Sulfur reviews

Return to Book Page. In school, Lochie is a little socially awkward. Looking forward to the small things. Meanwhile, the entire responsibility of maintaining the family came to the elder brother Lochan. The older brothers Lochan and Maya, aged 18 and 16, are in charge of their three little brothers of 13, 8 and 5 years and all the housework.

Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. After the initial shock review: If everyone participated in it – the human race would quickly devolve and be lost into genetic disorder. I’m not a big fan of judgement. What you’ll find instead with Forbidden is a book written with stunning insight and incredible compassion, and two characters who will absolutely break your heart.
