The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
by Jennifer Smith


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. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother 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 sitting in her row. A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?

Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

My Review

When I first heard of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, I was quite curious about it, but not enough to want to try reading it. I mean, it's the first time I've seen such a unique title, and the cover is cute, too! But from the title, I thought that it'd be just another cliche story - love at first sight. But as time went by, my friends finished reading it, and all of them were like, "It's so cute! You should read this!" I kept on telling everyone I will, but it never happened, until this summer.

Being free from all the school work, I finally had the time to read books again! Yay! :) And since everyone's been recommending this book to me, I thought, why not try it? After all, I've got nothing to lose. Once I've tried reading it? I couldn't put the book down! The book was totally not I expected it to be.

Even though it's something easy to read, something relaxing, the story is just simply like a roller coaster - full of ups and downs. It made me happy; it made me sad. Despite its title, it's not something where two people just fall in love instantly - it's where their love slowly, sweetly blooms. Not only is the story about love, it's also about family, which I really liked. I also liked the way that there are still some things that fit perfectly, even though all the other things seem totally wrong.

This one is simple, easy to read, that will absolutely make you smile. :) My friends were right, this story is cute! I totally don't regret trying this one out. :)

Quotes I Like

"It's not the changes that will break your heart; it's that tug of familiarity."

“Is it better to have had a good thing and lost it, or never to have had it?”

“Look what a hard time I've given him. But no matter how many times I've pushed him away, he always comes back around again. And I wouldn't want it any other way.”
