The book is about two best friends (Edy and Hussan) that have known eachother forever, but then Edy falls in love with Hassan but they cant be together as tradition wont allow it. The book had me hooked till the abrupt ending. A great cliff hanger. Cant wait to read the next book. I Would recommend this book to my babysitter and her friends.
The US High School background added extra interest for me, a Brit. Some of the teens are highly talented at sport and I enjoyed these parts of the story as well. I also found Edy's mother a fascinating character... the family meeting....although she couldn't be in any way commended for her mothering skills.
A fast paced and absorbing read with a surprise ending. Which left me hoping for a further book. Well done Shewanda Pugh.
Love Edy is driven by its two main characters, Nassan and Edy and their evolving relationship. The story begins at the end of Edy's fourteenth year and ends as she turns sixteen. Despite the fact that the best friends are relatively young in age, the passion between them is intense and the emotions they communicate are more mature than some adults.
The Phelps and Pradhan families have known each other for years and Edy and Nassan have grown up closer than most siblings. They are certainly not meant to fall in love, especially as Nassan is already betrothed to a traditional Hindu girl. Yet in a sense Shewanda Pugh allows her reader to see that actually their love is inevitable. The third person narrator mainly concentrates on the events in Edy's life and her desperate attempt to deny her feelings, but we are also given a glimpse into Nassan's head. Nassan acknowledges that Edy is changing, physically as well as emotionally and as her new friendship with Wyatt develops, Nassan's jealousy increases. As the star football player at school he has girls throwing themselves at his feet and though they provide him with a distraction, he realizes that there is only one girl for him.
The strength of the desire for each other causes both Edy and Nassan to cross the boundaries their cultures and their parents have set for them, between what SHOULD be and what IS. As readers we have to acknowledge not only their bravery, but that love transcends religion, race and rules.
Shewanda Pugh creates several secondary characters who either help or hinder the young couple.Read more ›
Edy (Edith) Phelps is an interesting character. She is a youngster of 14 years old, turning 15 when we first meet her. She is a typical teen: a little selfish, judgmental of her peers and extremely sheltered. I liked her, but wanted to shake her at times, especially when she did something or said something that she didn't mean. It was a bit painful watching this character grow up at times, because she had a habit of whining. However, what teen doesn't whine?
Hassan Pradhan is another interesting character. I liked him a lot. He is very protective of Edy, since they had been friends since they were babies. He has a great sense on humour and is a fantastic guy. I loved watching him grapple with his feelings for Edy, whilst trying to keep his friends and other boys from pursuing her.
This is an intriguing coming of age tale. I was completely hooked! The story is told through three character's points of view: Edy, Hassan and Wyatt. I loved seeing the world through their eyes. In a way, this story reminded me of my own teenage years. And, although my experiences were completely different, I can remember watching my peers as they experimented with drink and sex, whilst dealing with puberty and self image. It was interesting watching how Edy, Hassan, Wyatt and the other characters coped with the emotions and everyday issues of being a teen.
I also loved meeting Mason and Matt Dyson. They are twins and best friends with Edy and Hassan, along with their younger brother Lawrence. These three boys are just as protective of Edy, who they see as their sister, even though they are not related.Read more ›
