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.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was a very fun and light read. It starts off with the main character, Hadley, running late to the airport. She is going to her father's wedding in London, which she is less than excited about. While she is at the airport waiting for her flight, she meets a cute boy named Oliver.

I have been excited to read this book ever since I first saw it on goodreads. I feared that it might have been one of those cheesy, predictable, chick-lit love stories. However, I can happily say that I enjoyed reading this book very much. It wasn't predictable or cheesy at all! This just isn’t a love story, but also about family and life.

It was a very short read and was able to finish in one afternoon. I wasn't able to put it down. Hadley and Oliver were completely awesome characters to read about! I also liked how the author made the characters realistic. Hadley and Oliver was just your average teenagers stuck at an airport. I loved everything about them. I was not expecting that twist about Oliver at all. I really enjoyed that.

Overall, the Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is a wonderful read if you are looking for something light that has an underlining meaning. The ending was absolutely adorable between Oliver and Hadley, which is why the title of this book makes much more sense now. I totally recommend this book!
