Teaser Tuesday (17): Forbidden

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Grab the book you are currently reading and randomly post two non-spoiler sentences.

The Book

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Pages: 410
Release date: 15/05/10 (PB AUS)
Genres/Themes: YA, contemporary romance, incestuous relationships, forbidden love
Ages: Older teens and up


She is pretty and talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed.

He is seventeen; absolutely gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future.

And now they have fallen in love.

But . . .

They are brother and sister.

Forbidden will take you on an extraordinary emotional journey. Passionate and shocking, this is a book you will remember long after you have put it down.

The Teaser

"I know all about being ashamed of a family member - the number of times I've wished my mother would act her age in public, if not private. It's horrible, being ashamed of someone you care about: it eats away at you. And if you let it get to you, if you give up the fight and surrender, eventually that shame turns to hate."

(p. 35, Lochan, 3 sentences)

I love the quiet introspective sensitivity that Lochan's narrative voice provides. Right where I am in the book, he remains to be seen as immature and rash, though that's sure to come soon.

Thanks to Random House Australia for sending this one along for review. :)

 Hope you enjoy this week's Teaser Tuesday!

This week's question:

What do you think about Forbidden's cover? Dig or dud?

I personally love it, and think it's so suited for the kind of book it is.
