Publication Date: January 2nd 2012
Summary from Goodreads;
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.
Book Review;
4 stars, really enjoyed it
I was quite hesitant to read this because I don't usually enjoy books about love at first sight. They're usually fast paced, unrealistic, and not for me. This book however, managed to surprise me.

When I first picked up this book, I thought it would at least be a light, fast read considering how many pages it had, and it was but it also held some elements that made the characters become closer and easier to relate to. The statistical probability of love at first sight had the perfect pacing. It was a short & sweet book. One of the things I'd seen more of was the romance. Hadley always seemed to be worrying about her father and his future wife and not enough about the British guy beside her. The romance was adorable when it came up and Oliver was hilarious and sarcastic.  I really liked how after they got off the plane, the story continued.

The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight was a short and quick read filled with an adorable romance and realistic events that readers can relate to.
Trailer(s); I really like the animations in this videos, it's so cute ^.^
