Dusty Reads: Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

Dusty Reads is a weekly post featuring a book that has been sitting unread on my home shelf for some time.

Title: Forbidden
Author: Tabitha Suzuma
Pages: 454
Publication: May 1, 2010
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Summary taken from goodreads: 
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.
The whole incest thing was what made me automatically want to buy this book since it wasn't something I usually read about--or even heard about really. But since it was so thick and underneath some other books, I kept on forgetting to read it, no matter how enticing the summary sounded. I really do hope that I'll find some time to read it soon. :)
