The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight

“I can watch it,” says the boy across the aisle, and Hadley looks at him—  really looks at him—  for the first time. His dark hair is a bit too long and there are crumbs down the front of his shirt, but there’s something striking about him, too. Maybe it’s the accent, which she’s pretty sure is British, or the twitch of his mouth as he tries to keep from smiling. 

Who knew 4 minutes could change everything? When Hadley misses her plane by four minutes on her way to her dad's wedding, she thinks nothing of it. Until she meets cute Oliver he's british their on the same flight his seat is 18A hers is 18C through a twist of fate and over 24 hours comes this sweet story of finding love in the most un likest of places.

I just have to say how much I <3 this book! Best book I've read in a long time. I love how its written in present tense in 1st person. Its amazing how she put so much detail in the book to last one day. This book doesn't just tackle love problems but also problems like divorce Hadley hating her dad for what he did and hating Charlotte but she starts to realise something. 

I start to feel sorry for her dad as I know he cheated but it's not exactly his found he loved someone else, and Oliver was right it's better to be honest and move on to happiness rather than never have been happy and hide it. It's good how throughout the book we're given tit bits of Hadley's childhood.

Also you can't help but love Oliver's quirky and obviously not real things he's studying!
