Book Review: The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight

I have flown many, many times by myself, both on domestic and international flights. Every single time, however, I have been seated either next to an old lady, or a fat man. Each time I get on a plane, I cross my fingers that I will be seated next to a gorgeous, single, boy around my age, but each time I am disappointed. It seems things like that only happen in movies, or books. 


In “The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight”, Hadley misses her plane by four minutes, and then by sheer coincidence meets the amazing Oliver and ends up sitting next to him on her flight from America to England to attend her father’s wedding. Hadley and Oliver bond straight away, and soon find themselves wondering whether love at first sight is possible. They  give each other comfort on what they are both expecting to be the worst day of their lives, and over the 24hr period in which the book is set, you will find yourself beginning to believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it. 


While the book is probably outstandingly cliche, it’s part of what makes it such a cute read. You start wondering about fate and destiny, and hoping that the next time you get on a plane, your very own Oliver will be waiting in the seat next to you. 


“The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight” was an amazing read that I couldn’t put down. You had to keep reading to find out what would happen next, and whether Hadley and Oliver would find their happily ever after. Hadley is a perfect protagonist, and the kind of girl you could imagine being your best friend. A brilliant addition to the YA genre, when it’s released early next year, make sure you grab a copy.
