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. 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?

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.

My Thoughts:
(Date Read: April 20, 2012)

The thing that really drew me to read this book is the title - THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. The first time I read the title, I instantly clicked it, read the the summary, and immediately fell in love with the plot. It was love at first sight. And I have no complaints or whatsoever with the story because I really liked it so much. The characters aren't over-exaggerated with too much redeeming qualities. They are normal people with normal lives and problems. It wasn't hard to connect with them either. I even had those "aaaawwwwww" moments while reading it. All in all, the book was light, fun and sweet.

February 2016 Update: This 2012 review has been somewhat updated to suit the format and the layout of the blog. No major change has been made with my review. The thought, and most of the words I used back when I wrote this review is still the same. Only some minor editing, like deleting unnecessary words, phrases, expressions and emoticons.
