The statistical probability of falling in love at first sight, by Jennifer E. Smith

The statistical probably of falling in love at first sight must be infinitesimal unless there is a relationship and the two people are meant to come together. That’s the beauty of statistics and love. One says it is highly unlikely and the other suggests that nothing is random.

Our main character has just missed the flight to her father’s wedding across the world and the only thing that makes this a sad event is that she is forced to wait for another flight. She hates to go, she hates the wedding and she hates his new bride.

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.

In this very well written story which is meant for a young adult audience, the story and the characters are written clearly and with a touch of sympathy which leaves no one unlikable.

This is Jennifer E. Smith’s fourth novel and one I highly recommend for younger readers.
