The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith | A book review
Hello book friends! It’s Monday and I have another review waiting for you. I started this book at the beginning of March and finished it in two days. It was just so good and short! So let’s get on with this book review of The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith.
As always, first a shortened synopsis from Goodreads: 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?
My thoughts on The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight
Like I said at the beginning, this book was short and sweet.
Hadley is a teenager with divorced parents, and she acts like it too. Being mad at her dad, blaming him for everything and hating her not-yet-met stepmother too. I really liked her honesty too. Sometimes I felt for her because she thought life was just unfair.
Oliver was amazing. He was a gentleman, cute and awkward and just very lovable. I love how he interacts with Hadley and how they joke.
Both characters go through hardships, with the divorce and a thing Oliver has (can’t say it without spoiling!).
Of course, the plot is also incredibly cute. Girl meets boy, they happen to sit next to each other on the plane and – according to the title of the book – there is a love story there.
The ending, without spoiling it, is pretty perfect too.
