** spoiler alert ** I... Wow.

This book is just so fantastic I really don't know where to begin. The thought I had countless times while reading this book was that the imagery is so descriptive I want to write it down. I wanted to write every word of this book as I read it. I know i'm going to read it again, to memorize every stunning word of it.

Tabitha Suzuma became my favourite author before I even finished the book. I know the subject is 'taboo' but she presents it so vividly, seems to turn it around to be shown in every light you become totally lost in the book. You become personally invested in Lochan's battle between his unparalelled love for Maya and his fear at losing his family and the only safety he has. Maya's courageousness and determination in keeping Lochan make it impossible not to claw for some plausable way for there to being a fairytale ending. However, having a book centred around incest ingrained the suspense, building until the moment the secret came out in the worst possible way. Constantly I was tearing my eyes back from trying to scan further down the page to see if the inevitable was waiting.

There is more I want to write but my eyelids are tired from staying up to finish. I think I'll just close by saying I will never forget this book.

And thanks for writing this book too.

Cass -  Words on Paper Yes Nick. Smiley faces usually are good things. Haha. Can't wait to read your review (after I've read the book myself)

Thomas Lovely review! I've read it more than once and the emotional impact definitely doesn't fade...
