This book was very well written and is More a older teenager book, 15-21 age group. Though most female adults will enjoy. A great girly come of age, wake up story.
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.

Powerful focused dynamic writing. I loved it! An Asian teen and a black teen, from privileged backgrounds, are in love. There are lots of complications. Not least the fact that neither of them will admit it. Add to this the requirements for the Asian boy to make up one half of an arranged marriage. Plus a white boy, from a non privileged background, whose love for the black girl leads to.... Well, I won't say, in case of plot spoiling, but there's plenty of drama.

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.

Behind the romance of Love Edy, Shewanda Pugh immerses her reader in ethnic minority American cultures, addressing issues such as arranged marriage, religion and forbidden love.
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.

This is an interesting young adult coming of age story. I really enjoyed it.

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.

"She knew a moment and a touchdown. That was it... She lovd him. Dear God, she loved her best friend." (end of quote) Wow, talk about capturing the reader's attention. Author Shewanda Pugh sets up the story nicely right from the very beginning. The plot is crystal clear. The conflict, both internal and external, has been planted firmly in my mind. And I'm relating to the story immediately. Although I'm now over half a century old, I do remember what it's like to score a touchdown. It is a thrill that makes you irresistible, attractive beyond the boundaries of reason. So you go with it, knowing it's your moment, your 15 seconds of fame, and you owe it all to the game. In other words, it won't endure, for memory is short. and if you are lucky, your best friend, who secretly loves you, will still be there, waiting patiently for you to come to your senses. Yes, I remember well what it's like. Reading this book returned me to my teenage years, when scoring a touchdown was the ticket to finding out who you are, who you hope to become, and ultimately, to come of age with wisdom. This book is awesome, with an authentic feel to it. The character development is superb. The plot is authentic, and the protagonists have an age old tale to be told. Romeo and Juliet? No, something more profound, it is a chance (for me) to see where I have been. For a much younger reader, I believe the book is an opportunity to discover where you might want to be. Highly recommended for readers who genuinely appreciate excellent storytelling.
