Teen Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

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

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith is a light read about following your heart and forgiving your family. The story follows Hadley, a teen from the U.S. who travels to England for her father’s wedding. Although she is dreading the wedding, Hadley’s trip improves when she meets a cute British boy on her flight. They grow close, but get separated once in England. Reluctantly, Hadley goes to her father’s wedding. When Hadley chooses to listen to her heart, her journey becomes much more exciting, and she may have a chance at mending her relationship with her dad and finding the boy of her dreams.

I enjoyed reading The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, which was an easy read. While the story is unlikely to occur in real life, it had some elements that can relate to anyone. Jennifer E. Smith portrayed Hadley’s struggle with accepting her father’s new life beautifully. I also enjoyed the ending, which provides closure for every character. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy read with meaningful themes. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight will definitely leave you wanting to hop on a plane to England right away!
