Jennifer E. Smith’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight not only have an awesome title, it also has an equally awesome story. When Hadley misses her flight to London for her father’s wedding to a woman she’s never met, she finds herself stuck at the airport. Still not over her parents’ divorce, nothing seemed to be going her way. Not until Oliver appears and lends a hand with her suitcase, the two seemed to have set off sparks. A series of moments occur in the airport, plane, and in the customs line in London. Parting ways in London, Hadley comes to a realization as to why Oliver might be there. Leaving the wedding she did not like, she goes out and tries to locate Oliver.

The book’s alternating viewpoints helps in moving the story along and keeping readers turning the pages. The characters are truly likeable and unforgettable. Readers will be easily drawn into their complex lives and how deal with their difficulties. The connection between Oliver and Hadley is real and genuine. As Hadley deals with her issues with her father’s wedding and her parent’s divorce, her meeting with Oliver and their instant bond provided an outlet for her to the accept her life’s current situation. Author Jennifer truly captures a teen’s rebellion and how they handle them. The rich descriptions will make readers feel like they are in the driver’s seat for Hadley’s journey in locating Oliver. This book has that “one day in the life of” feel to it and Jennifer gives a very heart-warming story about a girl that deals with family pain and finding comfort in someone. The ending felt like more of a fantastic beginning for Hadley and will leave readers feeling genuinely good.
