The Statistical Probability of Love at First Site January 28, 2012

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

While the title of this book is what attracted me to it first, the story is what drew me in.

Hadley has missed her flight by 4 minutes.  What can happen in four minutes?  In the space of that 4 minutes two sets eyes have met across a crowded room; Hadley and Oliver are inseparable during the next flight.  The book takes place in a 24 hour time span and the events that happen during that time will keep you spellbound.  The dialogue is fast paced and intelligent and the story is FABULOUS. The book has several emotional highs and lows, but it is still an uncomplicated read that satisfies with a happy ending.

The book leaves you pondering at the end, how many people really believe in love at first sight and wondering if you yourself are one of those people.

Class is hard to come by these days, especially for the young adult woman who is bombarded with constant images of celebs with bad behavior.  Not to worry – I ordered three new titles for the Lass With Class:

Classy; Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady by Derek Blasberg

Very Classy; Even More Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady also by Derek Blasberg

and my personal favorite,  How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy.

Among my favorite things about this little gem of a book are the chapter titles themselves:

  1. Keep Your Chin Up and Your Skirt Down
  2. Words, Words, Words
  3. Use Some Elbow Grease
  4. Choose Your Friends Wisely
  5. Let Him Come Calling
  6. Dress to Impress
  7. Less is More
  8. Have your Cake and Eat it Too
