“She is pretty and talented – sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But… they are brother and sister.
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.” (Goodreads)
Yes. This book is about a brother and a sister falling in love with eachother. And yes. I found myself roothing for this couple. The love story is so well written. It’s uneasy but still beautiful. The relationship has time to grow. It has doubt and passion. You believe in this love. You want them to be happy.
I absolutely love the character. This family was not perfect, but i felt a strong connection with all of them. I just wanted everything to be okay.
The writing style is wonderful. Tabitha Suzuma is capable of picturing loneliness, love and sadness perfectly.
This book will make you mad and sad and smile and think. This book will haunt you with his emotional ride.
