The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
By Jennifer E. Smith
Poppy, 2012. 236 pgs. Young Adult
What a difference four minutes can make in your life. That’s all it took for Hadley to miss her fight from New York to London and meet Oliver also London bound.
Hadley is not at all excited to travel abroad for her father’s wedding to the woman she believes shattered Hadley’s family. Oliver’s reason for returning to London is not apparent at first, but he’s not exactly happy to be going home either. Over the course of the flight and the next day, these characters learn about the meaning of life, love, and family relationships.
I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to see the characters develop in such a short time period and see how they dealt with the situations they were individually put in. Even though their love story proceeded quite quickly, it was believable and delightful. I’d recommend this book for someone looking for a quick, feel-good read.
