Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week is:
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
Jennifer E. Smith
Expected publication date: January 2, 2012
Publisher Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
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 18B. 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.
I'm a total sap for true love, so even though this appears to be a case of insta-love, it also seems incredibly romantic and sweet. It has also been getting rave reviews already!
