Waiting on Wednesday: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming January 2, 2012!

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

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.

Ok, I don't believe in love at first sight at all, but I have to admit it's a nice fantasy. As someone who spends a lot of time in airports, I certainly wouldn't balk if a cute British guy just happened to be sitting next to me. This sounds like a fun, quirky read a la Anna and the French Kiss -- and we all know how much we loved that one. It also seems like an interesting look at chance and timing and twists of fate. Who knows, maybe it'll even change my mind about that first sight thing... ;)

What about you? Do you believe in love at first sight? What are you waiting on this week?
