Eva Marquez review

Sweetest Taboo


Isabel, a 15 year old High School student. She is a good student from a average immigrant family and in an average High School. She joins the swim team and meets Mr Stevens. Mr. Stevens is a young 30's something teacher. Good looking and teaches upper class men in math and photography. Liz, Isabel's best friend, has no clue why Isabel has a crush on him. He is a teacher. Even if he liked her, she can't have a relationship with him. The relationship would be more than just taboo. Will Isabel and Mr Stevens get together? Will they have a relationship that is the Sweetest Taboo?


In this review, I can't say too much, without giving away too much of the story away. This was a story I would not have read on my own but I am really glad I did. It is a book that makes you think about what is taboo and why. Although I do believe a relationship like this is wrong, what young girl doesn't have a crush on a adult figure in there life. A coach, teacher, instructor, or who ever, we all have been there, girl or boy. This is the story of that type of relationship. Sweetest Taboo, is ultimately the story of a remembered  young love and a teenager growing into adulthood.  There is a couple brief sex scenes and because of these I can't classify the story as a young adult. But, I know the readers who are going to relate to the story the most, are young adults. I would recommend 16 - 18 and up(depending on maturity), do to the subject matter. Very good story, keeps you interested through till the end. I think what surprised me the most, is as reading you really feel for the characters. So although, I don't condone this type of relationship, the characters of the story become like reading about a close friend or like Eva portrays in the beginning of the book, like reading someones secret diary. A truly TABOO situation. Really cool read!
