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.
—-Still smiling, I blink rapidly. ‘We can love each other.’ I swallow hard to ease the constriction in my throat. ‘There are no laws, no boundaries on feelings. We can love each other as much and as deeply as we want. No one, Maya, no one can ever take that away from us.’—-
(personal note- I’d recommend this book to 15+ readers only)
I don’t think I’ll be able to do this book the justice.
No words. I repeat. No words on my known language can explain to you every single thing that this book got me to live, every single pore that got attacked by my constant goose bumps.
The only reason I read this book was because of one single review. One single review! and I had to have it! Ignoring the warnings of this being a really crude story of such a taboo.
Since the very first word. Sentece. Paragraph. I knew I was in for a journey that, when finished and returned, I would NEVER ever be the same again.
Written with extreme love and carefullness. This book describes and gives you an insight in one of the worst-love-case scenarios possible, falling in love with your sibling.
Going from one turmroil of feelings to another I can’t even begin to describe how utterly heartbreaking and real the whole book felt to me.
It’s hard, cute, and awfull all at the same time!
Already feeling too empty… even if I couldn’t finish the book—-yes that’s right (shame on me) I haven’t beeen able to finish readin the book.
So now I understand what being in a love/hate relationship really means even if it’s just with a book.
But guys…you can’t seriously avoid being caught up with such a beautiful and horrifying story…you’d want to fight for all the characters you meet in this book. You’d want for them to be better and enjoy life, you’d want them to be happy. You’d be wishing you could get inside the book and make everything alright with your bare hands just to stop the suffering and tears and hurting that goes on…
I’m missing just 20 pages, just that to finish really really finish the book but I’m not sure I’m ready for it…so this is my little talk with my self about what a good book this was and how, even if I wanted, would I ever be able to write a proper review for it.
5/5 (mindblowing, hats off, hands down to Tabitha)
