"The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight" by Jennifer E. Smith

'The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight' by Jennifer E. Smith


Hadley's parents are divorced and she is expected to fly to London to meet her father for his second marriage to a woman she's never met. Hadley is less than thrilled to have to leave Connecticut to go to a wedding that, in Hadley's mind, shouldn't be happening. To make matters worse, she misses her flight by a few minutes and has to draw out the whole process even more by taking the next departure. But she ends up sharing the flight with a boy named Oliver, and she begins to wonder about all of the events that brought her to this moment and how life can change in an instant.
