Every book Jennifer E. wrote was about some kind of profession. Going Too Far(my favorite) was about police officers, Forget You was about swimmers, Love Story about upcoming authors and finally this one was about pilots. The author really did her work and I felt like she knows about planes.
Now to the story. Leah has had such a tough life I wanted to hug her so many times. She lives with her mother in a trailer park. She was practically on her own since she was ten because all her mother cared are her boyfriends. She started paying the bills when she was 14 years old working at the private airport. People from school don’t like her because they think she is white trash. They think she sleeps around with guys. So she puts on this “tough girl” act, like she doesn’t care about anything. I can relate to her because people tend to misjudge me because I wear strange clothes most of the time and have green or blue hair. It’s hard not to care what other people say and think about you. After her boss dies the airport is left to Mr. Hall’s teenage sons. Leah has had a crush on Grayson for years but he is rood to her and blackmails her in dating his brother. Can she do it even though she likes Grayson? She needs the job so she could move out of the trailer and one day hope to become a commercial pilot.
I know it seems like there is a dreaded love triangle in this book but I assure you, that is not the case. It was pretty clear from the start who is the love interest. Leah has grown up so much throughout the novel and she shows us that everything is possible, you just can’t quit on your dreams.
