Description

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything? Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's sitting in her row. A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more? Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.show more

Our customer reviews

I've wanted to read this since I first saw it last year before it was even released. I don't know what's taken me so long! The story takes place within 24-hours. I thought that would make the book drag, but it wasn't too bad. There are a lot of flashbacks so it doesn't feel like just 24-hours. It's the summer before Hadley's senior year of high school, and she's flying to see her father remarried. There's a lot of emotions that go along with the betrayal she felt when her dad left her and her mom. Jennifer, the author, does a great job portraying those raw emotions. I love the scenes with Oliver and Hadley, great chemistry. There's a bit of mystery surrounding Oliver and my prediction was totally false. :) I enjoyed the growth shown in Hadley's one day journey. This book was great with a wonderful romance! If you love YA contemporary romance, you'll love this book. Content Ratings: sexual: mild language: mild violence: none other: mildshow more
