This week's pick:
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
By: Jennifer E. Smith
Release Date: January 2, 2012
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.
I am swooning over this description; doesn’t it just sound delicious? In my mind it seems kind of like a combination between Nick and Norah’s Infinte Playlist and Anna and the French Kiss, both of which I absolutely adore.
I also love that it only takes place over 24 hours. To be completely honest I’m not normally a huge fan of love at first sight stories; I like my romance to have buildup and development, but I think this has so much potential that I’m not even letting that bother me. I’m totally prepared to love this novel.
Why is January so far away??
