Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
January 2, 2012
Poppy/Little, Brown

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 18B. 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.

One of my favorite reads is contemporary love stories. Okay, love stories, but I love when that's the main focus on the story, like ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS or well, anything by Stephanie Perkins.

Plus, I love the twenty-four hour period for a book. I loved it in IF I STAY and WHERE SHE WENT by Gayle Forman.
