Pugh's mastery of language is apparent in how well the reader is able to lose themselves in the story for extended periods time. 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. --Amitha Knight, Monkey Poop
I haven't enjoyed a young adult book as much as I did Love Edy in a very long time. As a matter of fact, this will be the first book to receive a five stars plus on this blog ... Pugh has written a seamless love story (saga) that is as beautiful as it is tragic. --Mommasez

I do want to give anything away but the book gave me a lot of wow moments even found myself laughing out loud a few times. Edy struggles with wanting to be with her best friend Hassan and knowing that even if they were to get together his family would never approve. Hassan’s family is more of a family than hers at times. Even though Edy had a closer relationship with Hassan’s mom than her own mom I felt confused by some of Hassan’s mom actions towards Edy almost as if she hated her but I guess mom are like that when they come to the girl their son will date/marry. When Wyatt was introduced I admit I did want Edy to fall in love with him rather than have her heart break over Hassan. Wyatt was different and just what the book needed. The book ended in a major cliff hanger, one that left me hanging on the edge of my seat.
I love the way Ms. Pugh illustrates a story with her words. The way she can describe something is magical. She truly has gift for that. The scene of Edy naturally becoming a woman was probably the best realistic description of the event I have ever encountered. I have decided that the next time a young girl ask me about the events associated with becoming a woman, I will read them that passage (lol).
There were times when I would get so frustrated with many of the characters, but I had to remind myself that they were young. Life is and was complicated for most of us at that age without adding in the discomforts of being "star-crossed lovers." I did like this book and am looking forward to Bittersweet (book two).
I thought this would be simply a coming of age tale. I was slightly disappointed because I did not want to read about puppy love and high school drama. I decided to continue on with this story because of the quality of the writing. I am more than pleased with that decision.
Readers are introduced to high school freshmen Edy and Hassan and two unique families - one Indian and Hindu, the other African-American and Christian. A life long friendship blossoms into love with the challenges of parental expectations and adolescence. Throw in an obsessive teenager with a dark past, mother/daughter antagonism, testosterone engorged football players, and a drive-by shooting and you have one hell of a story. This is not one of those stories with a whole lot of drama and mayhem but a slow build up to a cliffhanger. A freaking cliffhanger! But I've been so totally bewitched by this author that I could not muster up the indignation.
So I guess you can tell that I really like this book and I highly recommend it to everyone - even 40 year old women like myself.
