4.0 out of 5 stars Good Solid Story, 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forbidden Friends (Kindle Edition)
The mystery in Forbidden Friends isn't really much of a mystery at all. I'd be surprised if it takes you more than 5 or 6 chapters to figure it out. Luckily, the mystery of why Bee and Lizzie are "Forbidden Friends" is not the main reason for reading this book. The main reason is the clever storytelling, the chemistry between the two girls and the building tension as the story develops, resulting in a satisfying conclusion.

The story is told by both Bee and Lizzie, with each taking it in turns to tell their story. Sometimes they recall their own experiences, sometimes they tell of their interactions with each other from their different perspectives and often they pick up the story where the other left off. After meeting whilst holidaying in Spain and becoming close friends, they are forbidden from seeing each other because of a massive fall-out long ago between their families. They refuse to stop until they can get back together and discover what happened to cause the rift and make their parents so unhappy.

This book is ideal for teenagers - a light, uncomplicated mystery but more significantly a great story of friendship, the teenage years and some mild commentary on the dangers of peer pressure. It might not appeal to everyone in their adult years but I enjoyed it as a quick, simple read and would recommend it.
