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.
This was a hilarious book! Hilarious, and sweet, the majority of it happens on the plane, or memories, and then the last quarter, as life goes on, and maybe they try and find each other again. It was just perfect, a nice, easy, fun read!
I enjoyed how it was built up, all the coincidences, to the point where Hadley and Oliver have those 4 minutes, and the conversations that they have afterwards, they were just so great, random, yet connected, and yeah, just weird and quirky!
There was just such great writing, storytelling, with these great characters, that yeah, I'm going to be on the lookout for more Jennifer E. Smith books, it was just great! And I hope future books have titles that are just as fun to say/write as The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight!
This was a nice, fun, light book, and totally enjoyable! Totally recommended!
