One Wish with Jennifer Echols GCC Interview

Welcome to the Girlfriend's Cyber Circuit, a  web ring of YA authors dedicated to bringing you the latest news about YA releases and interviews with the fabulous people responsible for them.

I'm honored to be a new member, and look forward to hosting all the members here. Today I welcome Jennifer Echols, our fearless GCC leader, to the blog! 


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 adventure that is sure to keep readers soaring.    


Jennifer Echols is the wildly popular author of Going Too Far, Forget You, and Love Story.  Now, Gallery Books is proud to publish her first hardcover novel SUCH A RUSH (Gallery Books/MTV; July 2012; $16.99), a sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers. She lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

Now, for my questions!

1. If you could have one wish that would allow you to do something you've always wanted to do (and Ryan Gosling isn't an appropriate answer), what would it be?

I want to learn to surf. It’s the only thing on my bucket list. 

2. Why?
I grew up on a lake and love the water. I’ve been trying to move to the beach in Florida for most of my adult life. But the beach where we go in the Gulf of Mexico doesn’t have surfable waves. I want to be the dad in The O.C., the old uncool guy who surfs every morning and doesn’t care what you think. When I finally make that trip to California or Hawaii for surfing lessons, maybe I’ll be disappointed, but I don’t think so. Surfing seems like the perfect combination of water and action.

Thank you for visiting, Jennifer!
