The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight   By: Jennifer E Smith

This is the story of Hadley who is seventeen and headed to London to watch her dad get married.  She misses her first flight and is frustrated to have to wait for the next one.  She meets Oliver who is also headed to London and they strike up a conversation.  They instantly feel a connection and spend the entire flight talking.  When they reach London after a quick surprise kiss Hadley says goodbye and heads off to the wedding hoping to get there in time.  She is frustrated with her father and is not handling him getting married very well, after the ceremony she learns the real reason Oliver was in London and rushes to see him again only to have to say goodbye and head to the wedding where she can hopefully resolve the issues with her father.

I thought this was a cute story of love at first sight. It was one of those fanciful stories that you know would rarely come true but I loved it anyway.  I thought it was great how the characters connected so quickly and felt that it was a fun quick read.  I do think skeptics out there will say come on how could this possibly be something worth reading, but like I said if you just want a fun read about people falling in love at first sight this is your book. Great for high school and up!

I borrowed this from the public library
ISBN: 978-0-316-12238-2
