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

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer Smith is an enjoyable light read with a little more depth than most teen romances.

Hadley is four minutes late to the airport, so she misses the flight she didn't want to take in the first place -- the one that will take her to her father's wedding. Ever since her parents split up, the relationship between Hadley and her father has been strained. She's never even met the woman who is about to become her stepmother. While waiting for the next flight, Hadley meets Oliver, a British boy who is also on the way to London for a family gathering. When they board the plane, Hadley and Oliver end up sitting next to each other for the entire flight. By the time they disembark, a spark of romance has kindled -- but both Hadley and Oliver have other things to think about while they are in London. Will they meet again, or will nothing come of their flight together but a pleasant memory?

This is a sweet story, but it also takes an interesting look at how divorce can affect a family. I'm impressed at the way this story comes together, and will be looking for other books by this author in the future.
