Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I've wanted to read this since I first saw it last year before it was even released. I don't know what's taken me so long! The story takes place within 24-hours. I thought that would make the book drag, but it wasn't too bad. There are a lot of flashbacks so it doesn't feel like just 24-hours.
It's the summer before Hadley's senior year of high school, and she's flying to see her father remarried. There's a lot of emotions that go along with the betrayal she felt when her dad left her and her mom. Jennifer, the author, does a great job portraying those raw emotions.
I love the scenes with Oliver and Hadley, great chemistry. There's a bit of mystery surrounding Oliver and my prediction was totally false. :) I enjoyed the growth shown in Hadley's one day journey. This book was great with a wonderful romance! If you love YA contemporary romance, you'll love this book.
