I absolutely love this book! I picked it up because I was in the mood for a sappy love story, but I got much more than I bargained for! With father-daughter problems, bitter feelings about divorce, and the slightly awkward feeling of new love, this book is one that I didn't put down till I was done. It's a perfect "I'm bored and need an awesome book" read.

If you're finding a book that is cheesy this is not the book you are finding. You might expect it from the title but the story more revolves around the family of the two characters than the story of both of them.

The novel was a really cute read. It takes place over 24 hours and it doesn't just focus on the romance aspect, which was refreshing . The characters are memorable and their conversations on the plane were adorable. My only wish is that it was longer, but it had a good ending.

I was expecting a cute love story, and this included that, but was much more of a story about fathers and daughters, and whether its better to hurt people in the interest of ultimate happiness, or try to make things work as they stand. With the amount of bitterness and teen-angst that Hadley had been directing at her father, it felt a bit too pat that she would forgive and forget so quickly, but it made for a nice ending.

Smith's novel is a delight. Hadley is a thoroughly believable seventeen year old girl who is dealing with the trauma of her parents' divorce and the dreaded remarriage of her father. In contrast with this realistic family drama is the very sweet moments between Hadley and Owen. They spark, banter, and are just thoroughly charming whenever they're together. The dream of being seated next to a cute British boy on an airplane has never been cuter. A brilliant juxtaposition of dealing with the changes in a family that you can't control and the magic of a chance encounter, the book is a realistic and sweet read.

Sweet and lovely. Written by longtime Nerdfighter, Recommended by John Green.

I usually don't like this type of book but I thought it was quirky and interesting.

This book was so bad! There was no chemistry between the characters and the character development sucked. Now this book just haunts my nightmares.

I thought the book was sweet. It made me laugh, but it also made me cry once or twice...which isn't such a bad thing.

Do you believe in love at first sight? If not, then follow in the footsteps of Hadley and Oliver as they embark on a flight from New York to London. Somewhere along the lines of that they fall head of over heels in love. It's funny what fate seems to do to your heart.
