The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
Smith, Jennifer E. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. NY: Little Brown, c2012.
Hadley Sullivan is pretty hard on her dad, who went to England for a term to take an incredible career opportunity and never came back. On her way to the wedding of her dad and the woman who caused the split-up of her parents, she meets an interesting boy who is waiting for the same plane as Hadley. Hadley's constant bitterness over what happened with her dad is contrasted by the warm feelings she gets while spending time with Oliver. Though I sympathized with Hadley, I just wanted to tell her to get over herself and think about someone else, which is exactly what she does. If you like to read books with happy endings, don't miss this one. I was a little sorry to see so little of Hadley's mom who was a really great person. Recommended for grades 7 and up.
