Read full description of the books:
True Cause is the true cause. Lucky, so lucky. I love you. These are the phrases that fifteen-year-old Elinor has grown up with on the farm where she and her fellow Followers, led by the amazing Howard, live. It is a simple, material-less lifestyle, but Elinor is one of the Chosen, a special group of young girls who will go on to a very important role in her community, as one of Howard’s many brides. Importance is focused on the soul and not the outer body, and Elinor should be happy, so happy.
However, she is not. As Elinor sees more and more of the odd things that happen on the farm—such as when Meryl, a fellow Chosen, was tied to a tree to be whipped and then disappeared from them forever without notice, or when Howard pretends to drown a woman’s baby as a warning—she struggles against everything she’s grown up with.
This conflict between her community’s teachings and her inner voice grows stronger when she meets Jamie, a familiar-looking outsider boy who makes her stomach do flips in ways she just knows is dangerous. She cannot stay away from him, however, even though the only one who can ultimately save herself from the increasingly dangerous world she lives in is herself.
FORBIDDEN takes an interesting concept and spins it into a thrilling story. It’s sort of a psychological thriller in an eerie alternate world, dashed through with a bit of romance. A good read for dull moments.
