Summary from Amazon:
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.
Plane love. I believe in it, although I'm always the one who gets stuck by the smelly guys who hates my children and falls asleep on my shoulder. I've been excited about this book ever since it sold and buzz started building with loads of international sales. Contemporary books don't always fare as well in the global market, so yay for a book that's getting love all over! And it's easy to see why--I love this book. Start with a charming idea, add a solid voice and emotional truths and you'll find a book that is PERFECT for you next plane ride. Just ask the NYT review....
“The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight,” Jennifer E. Smith’s latest novel, is a gorgeous, heartwarming reminder of the power of fate and an echo of the timeworn motherly advice that love could be just around the corner, and that it will come when you least expect it."
