Editorial Reviews

Review

Pugh displays a wonderful mastery of the true essence of multiculturalfiction. Nuances of culture and upbringing are interwoven in natural,creative ways that don't detract from the beauty of this story. Thebuildup is deliciously paced ... All around a great read. -USA Today

The character development is superb ... Love Edy is a compellingyoung adult romance that I'd recommend to anyone who is a fan of eithergenre. It was a fun ride, and I look forward to catching up again withthese characters soon. -long and short reviews

The vortex of colliding emotions and raw beauty...is incomparable....The characters instantly become living, breathing, everydaypeople caught up in a maelstrom of challenges, friendships, love, andpain. You root for them." -The Kindle Book Review

Love Edy is heartwarming, exciting, intimate,beautiful.  -The YA Lit Chick
There is real substance to this story, and it is so beautifully and powerfully written. It was a page turner from beginning to end, and I will gladly read it again.  -Mother's & Madness Co.
 Pugh's mastery of language is apparent in how well the reader is able to lose themselves in the story... I didn't want to stop reading as I found myself rooting for one outcome only to end up rooting for another.  -Year in Books
Shewanda Pugh is a seriously talented writer, and I was sucked in by her beautiful language from the very first page. -Monkey Poop
You have to read this book! -Mousiey Books

From the Inside Flap

Excerpt
Mason muscled the Land Rover over a bed of shrubs and into the street, knocking his passengers left then right with the hustle. Just as Matt yelled for him to head in the opposite direction, Lawrence demanded to know if he could possibly hurry up. Hassan's eyes kept to the street, desperate for a glimpse of a just-departed Edy.
He supposed to an outsider their panic looked silly. But none of them cared. Edy was one of them, and they didn't need her father to remind them.
"Why would she leave like that?" Mason said, halting at a red light and chewing on the side of his thumb.
"Maybe someone tried something," Lawrence said.
"Tried something?" Matt echoed.
Silence filled the cabin.
Hassan's face tightened, teeth sealing with the weight of wet cement. That image didn't work for him. It didn't work for him one friggin' bit.
"If someone had tried something, Edy would've come to one of us," Mason said.
Chloe, who sat wedged between Hassan and Lawrence in the center backseat, cleared her throat. "Maybe she didn't want to," she offered.
That had everyone's attention.
"And why wouldn't she want to?" Matt snapped.
"I don't know," Chloe said. "Maybe . . . if she liked it." She looked from one face to the next, each cold, hard, unappreciative.
"Maybe you oughta be quiet," Lawrence muttered and turned to face the window.
Hassan rode with the company of his thoughts, now violently intruded on by Chloe's assertion. Meanwhile, he kept dialing Edy's cell and it went to voicemail each time. Tension hung like a threat in the air.
"Who saw her last?" Mason demanded. 
"Oh, don't start that again," Lawrence said. He turned to Hassan, eyed the cell in his hand. "Keep trying. Keep calling."
Hassan sighed. He pushed away a thousand crazy thoughts: that Lorenzo Carpenter had been lying to them, that Chloe had been telling the truth, that Chloe had been talking about Lorenzo when she told them the truth.
"We have to check her house," Mason said. "It's the only place left."
"Right," Matt sneered. "We just walk into her living room and ask Nathan if he's seen the daughter he left with us."
"Not us." Mason said. "Sawn."
"How?" Hassan said. He looked up from the phone.
"You've got a key," Matt pointed out. "Use it and walk up to her room."
"Like Nathan isn't up? Waiting?" Hassan said.
"Window," Lawrence said. "Climb up. Look in. See if she's there."
Her window. Their secret rendezvous place since Hassan had learned to climb trees at six. It was a decent idea. He could only hope that her father wasn't sitting on the bed, waiting for his now-late daughter.
They parked on the tail end of Hassan's street, Dunberry, behind a cluster of oaks and a stop sign. All four boys climbed out, hunched low, and scurried covertly to 2260, Edy's address, while Chloe waited behind in the car. On arrival, the Dyson brothers clustered around a sweeping, aged, and red-tipped chestnut, squinting upward as Hassan scaled it. They watched with a nervous eye for Edy's parents, or his, next door.
Hassan made it to the thick "V" of limbs that split half toward Edy's house, half toward his. He hoisted himself up, grabbed a gnarled branch for balance, and found a knot of familiar footing to stand on. A square of darkness stared back at him. He reached forward and yanked up Edy's window. 
"Edy!" Hassan hissed. "You in there?"
Silence.
"Ed--"
She emerged from the shadows, hair in an oversized ponytail, pajamas ultra-pink and wrinkled, the epitome of a been-sleeping girl. Only, he knew better. She stared back at him, evenly, eyes wider in the night.
"What are you doing here?" he said. "Why aren't you answering your phone? We've been looking for you. We didn't know what to think."
"I'm here because I live here. You can go back to your party now."
"What? I can go back--" Hassan flared. "Why didn't you say you wanted to leave? Mason would've taken you. Or Matt. I would have walked you, if nothing else."
"I don't need anyone to take me. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm tired."
But he couldn't excuse her. Not like that. Her anger, whenever he earned it, sat with him, needling like a shoe that didn't quite fit.
"Cake?" he said uncertainly.
His name for her. It had always been his name for her. But she jerked as if the word itself burned.
He needed to do something. To fix whatever was happening. Only . . . he hadn't the faintest idea what was happening.
"Edy, please. If I did something, just tell me. "
She ran fingers along the sill. They were long, slender, curving beauties that had climbed trees with him, and been laced with his a thousand times.
He had an urge to make it a thousand and one.
"Good night, Hassan," Edy said.
She looked up at him with puffy eyes and closed the window between them.
"Night, Cake." He whispered it to darkness.
