Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so completely—has also also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.

A Forbidden Book Club
So a while back I had tweeted that I wanted to read Forbidden dot, dot, dot. Then there was this twitter conversation between @ReadingTeen, @TwilightsDance, @katiesbookblog, @the_bookishtype, and I about how we all wanted to read it but you know...the whole brother/sister love thingy going on was sort of...an "ick" factor for us. For me, I was like, "This is where I'm totally drawing the line!" But everywhere throughout the blogging kingdom, anyone who read it, loved it...so I'm over here like, "WHAT GIVES?!" I need someone to hold my hand throughout this, someone to be there for me when I cringe, someone to be there for me when somethang cray-cray occurs, someone like...this awesome book club!
