Waiting on Wednesdayy: Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I can never get enough of Jennifer Echols' books. I have adored every one I have read & eagerly anticipate her next release. I have to admit that Such a Rush due out July 10 doesn't sound too much like most of her other works. While the main character is still a girl & she is still struggling to find herself, I feel that this one will be different. maybe it's the addition of the two brothers fighting over her, but something tells me that this one is going to play out differently than the others. Hopefully that will be in a good way!

Such a Rush coverHigh school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.    

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.

Even if this wasn't written by Jennifer Echols, I probably still would have picked it up since the premise is one you don't hear of very often. The last book I read about a teenage girl & flying was Flygirl & that's been a ways back. I can't wait to see what she does with that storyline because it can only go up from there.

What are you waiting on this week?
