Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan’s life. She’s stuck at JFK, late to her father’s second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley’s never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport’s cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he’s British, and he’s in seat 18C. Hadley’s in 18A.
Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver’s story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was easily one of my very favorite reads of 2011. My parents were divorced when I was a teen and I often had to fly between states on visits so I always dreamed I would meet some fun foreigner on one of my trips. What happens between Oliver and Hadley on their airport adventure is every girls dream. Oliver is quirky and British, Hadley is nervous to be flying to London to meet her new step-mother for the first time. When the two of them bump into each other it is magic!
I guarantee you will fall head over heels in love with this book. It’s a light fun contemporary YA read with some underlying bigger things going on. For me it was a perfect 5 stars and just in time for Valentine’s Day.
