The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Anna, Teen Blogger

In the cold months of winter, we often need a light, fun book to drive away the winter blues. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith fits that role perfectly. It takes place over only twenty-four hours and is enjoyable the entire time. 

The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight- book coverHadley is supposed to be flying to London for her father’s marriage when she misses her flight. She manages to get a seat on the next plane, and while she is waiting for her flight she meets Oliver. It turns out they have seats next to each other on the plane and they end up talking for hours on the long flight over the Atlantic Ocean. They lose each other when they land in all the hustle and bustle of customs, but meet again later -- drawn back together by love at first sight.

Although it is a fairly light, fun read, this book still has its emotional ups and downs. It is a cute, quirky story that could possibly convince even the harshest of cynics to believe in the power of fate and the probability of love at first sight. I would recommend this novel to anyone in need of a good enjoyable read.
