My review of 'Forbidden Friends' by Anne-Marie Conway
Anne-Marie has written a series of book club questions to stimulate conversation about her new book, and so without further ado, let me hand over to Anne-Marie:. The story explores issues of grief, loss, bulling and family loyalty. It is the story of a friendship tested to the limits. Bee and Lizzie have to overcome serious obstacles, and face up to their own deep-seated fears, in their quest to see each other again. The book club questions below are designed to take a deeper look at some of the issues raised in the story. I have also included some fun activities you could try with your book groups or English classes.
Two young girls arrive in Spain with their families. Neither have happy circumstances - Bee's father has gone missing and she has travelled with her mum and gran without him. Lizzie's brother died in Spain ten years previously and her mum and dad want her to join them in marking the anniversary. The girls manage to escape for a few hours each day and build a strong friendship which they intend to carry on when they return home. But before they can do so, they find that their families are keeping a dark secret which prevents them from maintaining contact. The book moves from a gentle, enjoyable account of a holiday friendship and gradually increases the pace and tension as the mystery unfolds, told by the two central characters in alternate chapters. It is a good read, which quietly raises the issues of moral dilemmas, loyalty, truth and lies, from the author of 'Butterfly Summer'.
