Leah has always lived by an airport. Usually in a run down trailer park with the cheapest rent possible because of the noise from the planes. And thanks to Leah’s mom, that’s all they can afford. Leah takes the proximity to the airport as an opportunity. She takes a job at there and saves her money, makes a deal with Mr. Hall for flying lessons and hopes that she can fly away from her life.
And throw a bunch of other stuff in there too! Like two boys, a best friend and a crazy summer. Whew.
Jennifer Echols can do no wrong in my mind. When I get her books, I drop everything and read them right away and I am never disappointed. I love her stories, I lover her characters, and I love how she absolutely sucks you in and makes you emotionally invested!
I wasn’t sure about the whole pilot thing. I mean really? But I was totally into it! That banner flying stuff is insane! I didn’t realize how dangerous something like that really was. It was fascinating and I can completely understand the draw that Leah felt.
Leah. What an incredibly character. I had such respect for this girl. True, I wanted to slap her a few times, but she just felt so real. And the boys. Specifially Grayson, just whew. The tension between Leah and Grayson. I could hardly stand it at times. So good.
You definitely need to read SUCH A RUSH, if you’re looking for cute boys, kissing, a awesome female protag, an engaging story, and did I mention kissing?
In case it’s not clear. I loved it. You should read it too. I think I need to get the hubs some aviator sunglasses… yummy.
