The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer Smith

YA/romance. 3 stars.

“Hey AR, how was that book you just read?”
“Fine.”
“Fine?”
Me *shrugs shoulders* “Fine.”

Since I didn’t read the blurb I didn’t know this was a YA book. For whatever reason I imagined adults meeting on a plane. I’m not sure I would have read it had I known it was YA. On top of that – books that convey a short period of time are difficult to read. This book took place over 24 hours. There was a fair amount of detail and little “action.” I got antsy. And realizing the book wasn’t going to move ahead in time somewhat diminished the impact of the story. I know that just an hour in life can change everything – but it’s hard to give much credence to a day’s worth of “love.”

Premise – Hadley is flying to London for her dad’s wedding. Misses her flight. Meets a fella on the next flight. 7 hours to bond (Hadley uses 98% of this time griping about her dad – seriously the dude left 2 years ago. Move on.) Once they’re off the plane what will happen?

It was an easy read. Took a couple of hours. Writing wasn’t bad. It was…fine. Everything is perfectly fine.
