Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols
July 10th 2012 by MTV Books

Why? It's Jennifer Echols! She took me by complete surprise with Forget You back in 2010 and I'm now working my way through her back catalogue. Truthfully, I'm not all too sure how the element of flying will play out as I've never actually read or even heard of a YA novel with a similar theme. I'm keen to read the early reviews but if all goes well, I should be pre-ordering this one rather soon.

Summary: High 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. 

Engrossing and intense, Such a Rush is a captivating story from an author with a rising star.

Let me know what books you're most looking forward to buying in the next couple months.
