With translation rights sold globally in over 20 countries, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is odds on favourite to be the most talked about YA release of 2012. Set over the course of 24 hours, this timeless romance for teenagers is written in the grand tradition of films such as Brief Encounter.
Characters Hadley and Oliver will feel as familiar to the reader as Dexter and Emma by the final page, and their story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it. Yes, it is really that good!
Today should be one of the worst days of 17-year-old Hadley Sullivan’s life. She’s stuck at the airport in New York, 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. So it’s a complete and utter surprise when she happens to meet the perfect boy in a cramped waiting area in JFK. His name is Oliver, he’s British, and he’s booked in seat 18C. Hadley is in 18B. Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves.
